Mautern an der Donau is a town in the district of Krems-Land in the Austrian state of Lower Austria.

Geography[edit]

It is situated on the southern bank of the Danube opposite Krems.

History[edit]

In former times ships cruising the Danube had to pay a toll when they passed Mautern. The town got its name from there because toll means "Maut" in German. Before it got this name it was called Favianae by the Romans because it was a very important fort.
