Steyr has one of the most beautiful downtown squares in Europe, where Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and Rococo meet each other in harmony. In the middle is the town´s emblem - the lovely "Bummerlhaus", a jewel of late-Gothic architecture.
The mighty Lamberg Castle towers high above Steyr on the foundations of the Styraburg. The very castle to which the town owes its founding.
