We met Michael (globtrott) in his hometown of Steyr. Thanks to him we were able to see quite a lot in the few hours we had available. Not to mention being with a person who knows his town from belfry to wine cellar. This is one fo the buidlings in downtown Steyr on the main street Stadtplatz. At this point the street is only a few meters across and more useful for foot traffic.

This is one of the back streets where Michael took us, it was wonderful walking here, it was empty of people and you can see that it is too narrow for cars. The building on the left seemed to grow out of the bedrock it was built on.

Or visit the Garsten Monastery, a small part of which you can see here. The artwork is amazing. But this cathedral also has a secret, but I will save that for later.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great if you have Michael as a guide
  • Cons:Too much to see in a short time
  • In a nutshell:Need to return to see it properly

    Well, when in Steyr, ask only for the best guide. Michael! I too had him as a guide. Sadly, my wife and I came to visit on a late winter afternoon so a visit to Steyr in summer is a must for us.

    Well you certainly had a great guide here Martin, and to take you to the wine cellar was a definite 'must see' :-)
