Travel Tips for Steyr
Steyr - Garsten Monastery with a secret
Michael took us first to see the Garsten Monastery. Yes, this is the one with a secret. We could not photograph it because of the surveillence cameras, but the grounds of the monastery have been divided. One half is the monastery, the other half is a jail, yes, a jail. It starts just off to the right hand side of where this picture stops, amazing.
Gothic, roman and baroque buildings
Most of the houses are gothic and roman origin, some are baroque and rococo. But some houses are gothic and roman even if they look baroque outside! You will see that if you have a look inside!
Steyr is one of the less towns in Austria which also has gothic houses in the town centre.
Steyr - Sternhaus, the blue building
Well Michael will probably never talk to me again, because I forgot the name of this building, but Michael if you can send me the name ......
Still just to wander the main street of Steyr and enjoy seeing the grand architecture in all its glory, well even if you can't remember the name of the building it will have been time well spent.
Okay, so I can now make an update, Michael kindly wrote me a letter and "reminded" me that this was the Sternhaus. So once again Michael I need to thank you for a tour of Steyr.
Many narrow streets
Steyr has many narrow streets and so most of them are a pedestrian zone .... So this is perfect to walk around and to have a look to the houses.....
And when you lucky, you get some sunshine as well and many colourful photographs, as I did ....
Steyr - wine cellar
Well it sure does not do to go to a place that cannot serve you a great glass of wine. Well Michael took us to "sample" the wine cellar in the hotel Mader and they were very well stocked. I can still imagine having something like this at home, it would not stay full for very long with a little help from our friends ;O)))
