Tiergarten

Reviewed By Tigerfan85 - Savannah area, GA

There were many young families, kids in strollers and running about having a wonderful time. In addition to the animals, there were play apparatus and a bounce house within the zoo. The animals are in relatively small enclosures, so you can see them well, but neither are they in little cages. Unbelievably nice for a free attraction, but don't expect the kind of huge operation you might pay a big fee to enter.

Zoo Schmiding

Reviewed By sauraumpfa - Wels, Austria

prices are slightly higher if compared to others, but was is offered is also exceptional.
in the open areas you may find anything from giraffe, lion, rhinoceros to birds of all kind as well as all european animals. the indoor zoo offers monkeys up to gorillas (very large space and super to watch them acting) and many kinds of butterflies & birds. in another large building there are all water species - crocodile, turtles, sharks, mantas snakes etc. etc. - too much to mention.
in that building there is also a large space for children to play (indoor)
another huge outdoor playground for children is available as well.
inside the zoo you will find an open air restaurant and another small one indoor, there is sufficient parking available but on saturday and sunday it may be very crowded.
very recommendable zoo

Ledererturm

Nice old building in the city center with a small tower. Nothing really special, but worth to see in the center of Wels.

Marienwarte

Reviewed By sauraumpfa - Wels, Austria

Not far from historical city center (about 25 - 30 min walk) - 10 min walk from historical city center over Traun river bridge to the beginning of the ascend to Reinberg hill (there is a car park if you want to come by car).
From the car park to the Marienwarte it is about 20 - 30 min walk depending on your fitness.
Once you reach the Marienwarte you climb the mnarrow stairs in the tower and enjoy the phantastic view over the City and Region.
It is worth to ascend the hill - the walk is almost entirely in the forest - so even in summertime when it is hot it is a pleasure surrounded by nature just minutes from town.

Burg Wels

Reviewed By Peter B

a fact which was a little drawback for local restaurant reputation for centuries. But things have changed in between - believe it or not, but it takes some time in Wels for things to change - and nowadays there is a lively infrastructure in Altstadt near by. So take a tour through the museum, grab a bite and mix with locals.

Mauth Stadion

Reviewed By shadow27xxx - Oberösterreich

Es ist nicht das größte und neueste Stadion, aber die Atmosphäre ist die Beste.
Das Stüberl ist sehr gemütlich und das Essen lecker. Das ganze Team ist mit vollem Herzblut und Engagement dabei.
Der Motorik-Spielplatz ist super und die Hüpfburg erfreut alle Kinder.
Leider gibt es wenige Parkplätze, da sollte investiert werden.
