TULLN

is a nice town at the Danube in Lower Austria. It has more than 16.000 inhabitants.
Because of the many flowers and horticultures in and around Tulln it is also
called "City of Flowers" or "City of Roses".
Tulln already was populated in pre-Roman times. Under the Romans it was
called Comagena or Comagenis. Visited by the Holy Severin.
In the "Song of the Nibelungs" we are told that Tulln was the place where
Etzel met Kriemhild.
Residence of the Babenbergs.
In 1683 Tulln was the place where the military Forces for the saviour of Vienna
against the Turks gathered.

Today Tulln for me is old walls (for instance a beautiful early-Romanesque
karner), roses and other flowers, Danube and ships, and a wide sky.
For being situated in the plain "Tullner Feld" (Tullner Field) there are no hills or mountains.

So come and visit with me one of the oldest towns of Austria. :)


Tulln (1)


At the Main Train Station




Over the whole town there lies a smell of roses...
View from the flowers on the river bank to Austria's biggest river:







The romantic "Nibelung Fountain", a work by Michail Nogin and Hans Muhr.
It symbolizes the peaceful meeting between Orient and Occident:




Kriemhild and her Entourage:




Etzel, a quite handsome man in this figure, if you ask me ;)




Energy ;)




View through Etzel's boots :lol:



This fountain of course is a Tourist attraction.
If someone now is interested in the Story of the Nibelungs, here you can
find a short Version of the "Song of the Nibelungs":

Tulln has two bridges over the Danube:




Detail of the "Stadt Wien"




A beautiful and "fragile" sky yesterday above the big river...




The ship "Regentag" (Rainday) of the Austrian Artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser,
where he also lived for some years:




Do you like Tulln? ;)
I love it and will try to report you some more impressions in the next time.

Thank you all for your interest and the 'Likes'!
Eduarqui, welcome to my thread!

How far is Tulln from Vienna, Yansa? Was this your first visit, or is it somewhere you return to regularly?
It takes about half an hour from Vienna to Tulln with the train.
Have not been there for about 15 years!

I always loved Tulln for various reasons: the traces of history, the near Danube, the Egon Schiele Museum and the flowers. Nearby, in Frauenhofen,
there is a big Gardening Center where me and my familiy have been very often -
always swearing only to look and not to buy, and in the end driving home with a car full of plants. ;)

Tulln Train Station







Here you can see the vast plain "Tullnerfeld", and in the far distance the first hills
of Vienna Woods, which is the South border of Tullnerfeld:




On the way to the Hospital: Flowers, flowers, flowers. :)







Tulln Hospital




Here they are again, our friends from the Orient and the Occident... ;)







He/she also is part of the Monument ;)

@Slovenec:

A close relative of mine is very ill at the moment - I'm in great sorrow.
How dare you insult me with silly questions like #111 in your thread
"Photos You've Taken in Slovenia"?
Moderation is already informed.

I will not write in your thread any more and I wish, that from this moment on
you stop writing in my threads. Keep distance - I am not joking.

It's completely irrelevant what I understood in that post.
The point is, one does not ask women such questions, and one does not
use such words in a forum like this. It's a matter of RESPECT.

It does not make it better that you repeat that sentence now.

Leave my threads now and we will forget the whole matter.
