Perchtoldsdorf

Trip Planner Europe  /  Austria  /  Lower Austria  /  Perchtoldsdorf
Perchtoldsdorf is a market town in the Mödling District, in the Austrian state of Lower Austria. It is chiefly known as a winemaking place.GeographyIt is located immediately at the Vienna city limits, south of the Liesing borough and about 16km southwest of the city centre. The western parts of the municipal area border on the Vienna Woods mountain range.With a population of 14,614 (as of 2012), Perchtoldsdorf is the district's second largest municipality, after the administrative seat Mödling. It is served by the Vienna S-Bahn network and can also be reached by bus and tramway lines run by the Wiener Linien public transport company.HistoryThe area formed a coast region of the Paratethys sea during the miocene epoch, documented by numerous fossilizations of marine creatures. Neolithic circular enclosures suggest the assumption that the plain was continuously settled from about 6000 BC onwards.Perchtoldsdorf Castle probably was laid out before 1000 AD, part of a chain of fortifications along the eastern rim of the Vienna Woods. One Lord Heinricus de Pertoldesdorf was mentioned in an 1138 deed, during the Babenberg rule, while the region belonged of the March of Austria. The Babenberg margraves had to defend the newly conquered territories from the recently displaced Magyars on behalf of the Ottonian and Salian emperors. Their Perchtoldsdorf vassals continued to rule from the castle even when the Babenberg dynasty became extinct in 1246.
