Austria – Freistadt

Freistadt (literally “Freetown”) is a small Austrian town in the state of Upper Austria in the region Mühlviertel.
Freistadt was an old medieval town (founded around 1220) that separated the Habsburg and Bohemian lands. It was a crossroad of the salt and iron trade route during the Middle Ages from the Danube to Bohemia. The outer and inner walls, towers and gates of the old city, build mainly between 1363 and 1393 still exist today.
