Even the Romans knew it: This is a great place to stay! The former Celtic settlement got its town status already under the Emperor Hadrian and was named "Ovilava". Today, the charming small town in the heart of Upper Austria, directly on the Romantic Road between Salzburg and Vienna, has become a dynamic city that is well-known for its trade fairs and shopping opportunities and has an excellent infrastructure. Countless museums, events and great leisure facilities attract many visitors to Wels.
Wels also conquers the hearts of visitors as it has maintained its cultural and national heritage. The historical town square with its magnificent town houses and romantic arcade courts are among the most beautiful in Austria
Come and see for yourself! We are looking forward to welcoming you to our small town.
