Steyr is Austria’s 12th largest town and the 3rd largest in Upper Austria; it has a stable population of around 38,100 and is listed as a statutory city. The area has been settled since Celtic times and became part of the Roman Empire around 15 BC. As with many towns in Austria, the influence of the Habsburgs and Babenbergs is evident, and Steyr has been conquered and ruled by both during its history. The two rivers that run through Steyr are a dominating feature of its divisions, as are the various manufacturing industries that have sprung up here over the years. The wonderful old town and a wealth of historic buildings, coupled with Upper Austria’s stunning scenery, make Steyr a great town to visit.
