To begin we all should be parking legally everywhere. My word of caution is to make sure that you properly obtain a parking pass from the self service machines. You pull into town and the parking is behind the downtown buildings right along the river....More

Steyr has so much heart and soul and that goes way beyond the fact that the city has a long history as a manufacturing centre. Go down to the "Wehrgraben" and take a stroll along the tiny streams and enjoy the architecture, small cafes, pubs...More

I was on a bicycle trip, visited Steyr for an hour only. It is a small town with extremely beautiful historic centre. You can also see a few old churches and a castle/palace. The town is in a hilly place, so you can also enjoy...More

Definitely worth a visit, especially for the Christmas markets. Fascinating old buildings, cobblestone streets, narrow passageways, ancient churches. Just go and enjoy

Steyr is interesting but the buildings quite ordinary. Stein am Rhine much easier to visit and buildings more beautiful. Passau similar except for pedestrian zone. Was not worth the drive from Linz.
