Only certified attractions guarantee a 100% experience!

In 2002 a special seal of quality was developed to recognise an attraction in Lower Austria as a Top Attraction. This award, that guarantees the highest quality, has been given to 48 Top Attractions in Lower Austria. They have proved themselves by attracting about four million visitors a year. The diverse offer ranges from natural and theme parks, abbeys and monasteries, fortresses, palaces and castles, museums to mountain railway tours and cruise lines. To guarantee the high standards and quality requirements, a list of specifications and quality criteria has been defined by the Top Attractions Team.
