Freistadt, Oberösterreich, Österreich

Charming little town rich in history ...

The ancient town of Freistadt has always been of major importance due to its convenient location on two significant trade routes in immediate vicinity to the Bohemian border. In 1220 the Babenberger Dynasty founded a fortification and trade center named "Frienstat" (Town of Liberty).

Following the tracks of ancient history you are invited to stop at one of the cozy cafes, bakeries or inns along the trail. Freistadt is also known as Mühlviertel´s shopping mall featuring many attractive stores and shopping centers. We are looking forward to welcoming you soon.
