Römer-Rastplatz Mitterkirchen

Mitterkirchen im Machland, Oberösterreich, Österreich
One of 20 Roman rest areas on the Danube Cycle Path in Upper Austria invites cyclists to recharge their batteries in Mitterkirchen and provides information about the Roman heritage, the Danube Cycle Path and the local community.

The rest areas consist of an exposed concrete column, reminiscent of a Roman milestone, bearing a Roman head created by artist Miguel Horn and containing information about the local community, the Danube cycle path and the Romans, as well as a 5 metre long rest bench made of concrete and stone and a paved floor made of Danube pebbles. The architecture is based on design elements from Roman times.

The design for the Roman rest areas was the result of a competition organised jointly with the University of Art and Design Linz and won by student Lukas Beltrame. An important partner in the construction of the squares is the construction academy in Steyregg, which produced all the built-in parts for the squares with its apprentices.
