Steyr is a beautiful small town in Upper Austria, a place to live and love, spilling over with culture, industry, nature and architecture. The 1000 year old town with a population of 38,000 lies at the confluence of the rivers Enns and Steyr. Its architecture is fascinating – the historic town square is lined by harmoniously co-existing town houses from different eras. The gothic Bummerlhaus is a well-known townhouse at the centre this unique town square. Presiding over the whole town is the impressive Lamberg Castle built on the foundations of the original ‘Stirapurhc’ fortress from which the town derived its name.

Steyr becomes a reflective and thoughtful place to be during the advent period. Steyr is the ideal town to visit at this time, with Austria’s main Christmas museum, the Steyr nativity scenes but most importantly perhaps, the pilgrimage site ‘Christkindl’ with its world-famous post office for letters to the Christkind. Tradition and customs are all important in Steyr at this time of year. A trip on the Steyrtal steam train will provide an unforgettable experience as it chugs its way to the advent calendar village of Steinbach an der Steyr as it has done for over 125 years.
