Tulln an der Donau, Danube Ship Station No. 26

The famous painter Egon Schiele spent his childhood in this city. Visitors can still find many traces of his life and times at his birthplace or on the Schiele Trail. Tulln has earned a special reputation as a city of gardens. The cityscape is enhanced with lovingly arranged flowers, and the only ecological garden show can be viewed here too. http://erleben.tulln.at
