Introducing Wels

Roman-rooted Wels is the largest town in the Traunviertel. While there are few real sights, this is a handy base for exploring rural Upper Austria. The centre is a pleasure to stroll through, with a clutch of Renaissance and baroque townhouses hiding inner courtyards and walled gardens. In summer the town springs to life with markets, open-air concerts and film festivals.
