Our city hall is 500 years old, but has been renovated several times. The inside is brand new, but on the outside on the corner you can find some pieces of wall that were kept in their former "outfit". If you get the chance to have a look inside the police-office, you can see how the inside looked in former times. Really beautiful!more

St Pölten is on the Westbahn line - between Vienna and Salzburg. If you are travelling from Vienna, then you can reach St Pöten in 40 minutes on the fastest InterCity trains - non-stop - such as the train to Zurich and/or all services to Salzburg and Munich. Otherwise there are also the slower Regionalzug (regional train services - their numbers...more
It is Austria's second oldest pedestrian zone with a great flair. Most of the shops are located in Baroque or Jugendstil (art nouveau) buildings. It reaches from the central station to the tawnhall and the cathedral. Many cafes and restaurants invite to a nice break. Dont miss the market days at the cathedral! You can buy everything - from shoes,...more
It's the biggest shopping mall in St. Pölten with 70 shops, 10 restaurants and an ice-skating-hall.Shopping in the city center is nice, but when the weather is bad, this is the perfect place to spend your afternoon. Here you get everything: shoes, clothes, crafts, gifts, stationary, food,.... Most shops are quite cheap, only some more expensive...more
Keep your eyes open when you walk through St. Poelten. You will find art everywhere. Many walls and buildings are decorated with paintings of famous artists. This is a very nice one telling about the hard work people in Austria had to do after the second world war to build up their houses and towns.more
This nice modern sculture is located just infront of the local health-assurance. It's nothing special, but I like it though.When you've found it, be sure to have a look across the street. There you'll find a nice little art gallery. It's the gallery of Heldenmut, a famous local artist. I lofe his paintings a lot! Maybe you like them, too, and take...more
The Ratzersdorfer See ("See" means lake) is a small, but lovely little lake in the north of the city. We call it our "sea", because in summer there is a lot of beach activity there. Most inhabitants like to go there for swimming or sports activities like Beach-Volleyball, Beach-Soccer, Soccer, Mini-Golf, or just having a nice walk. It's a perfect place for meeting friends and refresh on a hot summer day. You don't pay any entrance fee, just 2 EUR per car for parking in the huge parking lot.
In winter when the temperatures are below zero for a week or so, the water freezes quite thick (about 14 - 20 cm thick) and it's perfect for iceskating or playing icehockey. Many inhabitants go there on nice winter weekends to spend their time on the ice.
Equipment: You don't have to bring food or drinks with you, because in summer there are stands that sell everything you desire. There are also two restaurants on both ends of the lake that are opend the whole year long.
St. Pölten is a party-town. There isn't much action here, but when there is a festival everyone is dancing in the streets...We've got festivals and feasts the whole year through - summer and winter. There are stages, bands playing, discos, stands, ... and a lot of music and fun!! The most famous ones are:City-Festival (2 days): beginning of July -...more
