Within Austria, the Thaya region is generally associated with remoteness and natural beauty – note also my article on the Nationalpark Thayatal. Waidhofen is a logical starting point for exploring the Thayatal region and the northern parts of the Waldviertel area. Make sure not to confuse Waidhofen an der Thaya with a town of the same name further south in Lower Austria, Waidhofen an der Ybbs.
Waidhofen an der Thaya is especially attractive due to the changing history with its neighbouring country Bohmen, with whom it had seen times of war and times of freedom since 1171. This also influenced Waidhofen’s architecture. Medieval defence facilities can still be seen. However, the true symbols of the town are the two towers of the church and the town hall which make the silhouette of the town easy to recognize.
