Enns & Surroundings
According to own statements, Enns is the oldest city of Austria. It corresponds to Lauriacum, which was appointed to being a city in the year 212 AD. This city reached its importance as a trading hub and as a base on the Limes along the Danube. Especially at the beginning of the third century it was highly relevant as military base.
The 60 meter high city tower overshoots the center of the city of Enns. The “Römer Rundweg” (roman path) starts at the foot of the city tower and leads through the past in eight stations, interactively guided by its own app.
