how do you pronounce steyr
just like it would be spelled Steyer, but the 2nd E is almost not spoken.
we also have the most common name of Austria:
Mayer, Meier,Meyer in a spelling like Mayr - and everybody would pronounce it just the same way, like the ones that have and ER at the end
Re: Re: pronunciation
"Steyr" in German does not really sound like "stair" in English. The "st" is spoken as "sht", the "ey" like "y" in "my". So, if the word would have to be written in English, it would probably read "shty-air" and would have to be spoken with a very short second syllable.
Travel Tips for Steyr
By far, Steyr's rich architecture and strategic location at the confluence of the Steyr and Enns River makes it a must vist place for any visitor to this area. Plus, paying a visit to everybody's good friend Michael (globetrott) is always a plus! As night descended on Steyr, we were crossing the river over a small foot bridge and I looked towards the Michaelerkirche and to my surprise, I could see the reflection of the church against the Steyr River. I immediately pulled out my camera and took the best shot I could considering the lack of light and overcast conditions. Admiring this view was one of my fondest memories of Steyr.

Steyr - Hotel Mader courtyard
Michael took us to explore a little in the Hotel Mader and this was one of the sights that we got to see. This is one of the interior courtyards of the hotel and it is almost impossible to discern here, but each and every one of the colums is worked differently and each floor has its own design along the wall.
