Especially in Corona times, when traveling is becoming more and more difficult and the recently imposed, fourth large lockdown allows everyone to leave their own four walls only for the bare minimum, the desire for freedom and wanderlust is increasing among Mr and Mrs Austrians. But no lockdown lasts forever, and the involuntarily gained time at home can be ideally used and even easier to survive if you not only dream about your next venture, but also plan it right away – and in fact, many worth seeing destinations are often much closer than you are thinks: Because if the pandemic has shown us a little more clearly than ever before, then it is how beautiful Austria is!
That is why the eXXpress has come up with something new: From now on we are spraying a lot of “love for Austria” in the eXXpressTV evening program at regular intervals and bringing well-known red-white-red hotspots as well as hidden gems of the country in front of the curtain. We let the “youngest” go first – to be more precise, the youngest capital of Austria: St. Pölten.
The Lower Austrian capital has a lot to offer in terms of tourism, as Mayor Mag. Matthias Stadler tells an excited Chris Antonio in the eXXpressTV Newsroom: “St.Pölten is a city worth seeing in the middle of Europe, which is easily accessible from a traffic point of view. The combination of new and old makes Austria’s youngest provincial capital a special experience! ”, Enthuses the city chief about“ his ”St.Pölten.
In fact, there is something for every taste in St. Pölten: architecture fans will be delighted by the cityscape that could not be more diverse: Baroque, Art Nouveau and modern times come together here, and yet there is still plenty of space for green spaces almost every corner can be found. “Urbanity and nature in a unique combination which, in addition to voyages of discovery, also offers a wide variety of leisure and recreational opportunities,” Stadler says proudly.
Due to its central location, St. Pölten is also the ideal location for a company or club outing to Lower Austria. Arriving by train or bus takes guests straight to the center, where many excellent hotels and inns are waiting and offer the perfect starting point for exploring the city and the surrounding area such as the Wachau or Mostviertel. ”Or you take the opportunity to make a detour to Vienna from St. Pölten. This can be done by train in less than 30 minutes ”, notes Mayor Matthias Stadler and adds what else distinguishes St. Pölten:“ St. Pölten has more jobs and training places than residents (over 60,000 , Note)! “
If you want to spend a little holiday in Lower Austria for the eyes, then you should definitely switch on eXXpressTV this evening at 7.30 pm – either directly here on eXXpress.at or on Kabelkanal 170 at Magenta !
