Steyr was once a rival to Vienna and has retained the role of an important economic centre from its glorious past. The old town, huddled at the foot of a hillock at the confluence of the Enns and Steyr, has retained its character and charm. The central Stadtplaz is its finest urban scheme, with handsome houses with balconies, towers, gables and arcaded courtyards.
