"Darling Hotel and Market" Vöcklabruck by grandmaR

Vöcklabruck Travel Guide: 1 reviews and 7 photos

In 1962, my mother and father wrote me that they had left Vienna and spent the night in a darling hotel in Vöcklabruck

Vöcklabruck is the administrative center of the Vöcklabruck district, Austria. It is located in the western part of Upper Austria, close to the A1 Autobahn and the B1 highway.

Food markets selling bread, fish, flowers, fruit, meat, sausages and vegetables etc. still take place every Wednesday and Saturday morning. My parents were particularly intrigued with the pigs

Vöcklabruck's name derives from the River Vöckla which runs through the town, whose name in turn originates from a person's name ('Vechela') and 'Ache', meaning 'flowing water' or 'river'.

The town square is closed at either end by two towers which have arches to pass through.
