Introducing Leoben

Leoben is another of those unprepossessing towns that reveal a few surprises once you dig down into their modest urban souls. A revamped museum quarter is one very good reason to prolong a flying visit here between trains. The town is also a centre for metallurgical industries and home to Gösser beer, and achieved ultimate fame with the peace treaty signed here in 1797 by Napoleon and Emperor Franz II.
