Welcome to Wels

Settled since the Neolithic era and a strategic Roman stronghold, 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 and open-air concerts
