Wiener Neustadt

This large town, some 40 km (25 miles) south of Vienna, is an industrial city and an important road and rail transport hub, and also the largest shopping city of Lower Austria. In the centre of the town is the attractive Hauptplatz, with a part-Gothic Rathaus (town hall) rebuilt in Baroque style. Gothic houses line the northern side of the square, and the St Mary’s Column (1678) stands in the centre. The Dom (Cathedral Church of the Ascension of Our Lady) was built in the 13th century. Its outstanding features include 12 wooden statues of the apostles by the columns of the central nave, and the Baroque main altar. The Brautportal (Portal of the Betrothed) dates from 1230. In Stift Neukloster (Holy Trinity church) you can see a beautifully carved stone on the tomb of Eleanor of Portugal, wife of Emperor Friedrich III, by Niklas Gerhaert of Leyden, dating from 1467. The former castle now houses the prestigious Military Academy, once commanded by General Rommel. In its west wing is the 15thcentury St. Georgs-Kathedrale (St George’s Cathedral), with the tomb of Maximilian I under the main altar. A corner tower, a remnant of the old fortified city walls, now houses a criminology museum and a gruesome exhibition of instruments of torture.
