Attnang-Puchheim

Attnang-Puchheim is a town in Austria, located in the Vöcklabruck district, lying between the cities Vöcklabruck and Schwanenstadt. It is twinned with the city of Puchheim in Bavaria.GeographyAttnang-Puchheim is centered in the Hausruckviertel, a county within Upper Austria in the northern Austrian Prealps. Attnang-Puchheim is also called as "Door to Salzkammergut".HistoryAttnang was founded by Bavarian seddlers in the late 8th century. The town of Puchheim is documented the first time in 1135, Attnang about one hundred years later in 1242. In 1912 the community changed its name from Puchheim to Attnang-Puchheim to acknowledge this growing part of the town.In World War II, the trainstation served as connection to the Schlier V-2 rocket motor test area. The Attnang-Puchheim marshalling yard was bombed on April 21, 1945 at 10:57 by 179 bombers of the US 15th Air Force from Foggia, Italy. The air raid destroyed/damaged 120 apartments and 277 houses and caused the highest World War II death rate in Austria: 708 of 5,600 residents or 12.9% (compared to 2.5% for Wiener Neustadt). The Allies captured Attnang-Puttheim on May 5, 1945.TransportationAttnang-Puchheim railway station is a railway junction, where the Salzkammergut line connects with the Salzburg - Vienna line. It is an important station for travellers who wish to access the Salzkammergut from the rest of Austria and Europe, serving both rail and bus passengers. It has some importance for freight traffic and locomotive servicing, though not as much as in former days, when it was a major division point.
