One of Austria´s most beautiful street squares

The Wels town square, with its architectural unity, is one of the most beautiful town squares in Austria with its buildings showing attractive baroque facades from the 17th and 18th century. The buildings mostly date from the Gothic and Renaissance periods, which is particularly evident in the back courtyards.


We offer individual competitions in 6 classes.

Please note the limited participation numbers!
