River Danube & Granite
A famous town ... Mauthausen has a lot to offer for demanding guests. Enjoy a relaxing walk along the picturesque Hendlkai shores of the river Danube where you might see ships passing by, heading to the nearby harbors of the river Enns. Spend the most outstanding days of the year in a very special holiday resort. Mauthausen has always been a renowned trading place and commercial center located on the North-South trading routes.
Mauthausen has a long tradition in salt and iron trading due to its connections to Moscow. From 904 onwards it was one of the most important harbors on the Danube. Mauthausen´s granite is well-known, too. A whole range of stately buildings in Vienna and old bridges in Budapest are made of granite from Mauthausen.
