A / NOE: Neidling: Presentation and Opening

The market town of Neidling is located in the Mostviertel on the Roman road from St. Pölten to Melk. The gently hilly landscape invites young and old to go on hiking excursions – worth mentioning here is the Dunkelsteinerwald, which is home to numerous walking paths, hiking routes and chapels. The verifiable history of Neidling goes back to the year 828. That was when the place was first mentioned in documents. Goldegg Castle, which was built around 1300 on a southern foothills of the Dunkelsteinerwald, is home to other sights such as the castle chapel and the castle garden – known for its garden art and small monuments. Another special feature of the region are the old cellar alleys in the cadastral community of Flinsbach. Today‘s town of Neidling was founded in 1890 and became a market town in 2006.

Today‘s municipal area includes the towns of Afing, Dietersberg, Enikelberg, Flinsbach, Gabersdorf, Goldegg, Griechenberg, Pultendorf, Watzelsdorf, Wernersdorf and Neidling itself.

Even before the Topotheque Neidling opened, much of the location‘s archive was put online. In her foreword, Mayor Barbara Egerer-Höld invites you to „browse through the past.“ The Neidling Topotheque team, Maria Hromecek, Josef Klammer and Andreas Krendle, opened the digital archive doors of the market town of Neidling at the well-attended presentation of the Topotheque on the evening of October 10th. Go on the virtual picture shopping tour straight to the Fichtinger department store in 1930 – if you can find out what was available to buy in the machine besides the information about postage stamp wear, please let us know!
