Enns : Michelin's recommendations
Once known as Lauriacum during Roman times, Enns is considered to be Austria's oldest town. This past is reflected in Enn's well-preserved fortifications, churches and imposing old town houses, which are all mainly Gothic in style and often feature arcaded courtyards. The 60-m high belfry, Enn's landmark, stands in the centre of the great town square. From here, visitors can enjoy a superb panorama which, on a clear day, stretches to the Pre-Alps.
