Gänserndorf is a town on the Marchfeld, Lower Austria, Austria and the capital of Bezirk Gänserndorf. It is about 20 km northeast of Vienna, to which it is connected by both the Angerner Straße (Bundesstraße, or federal highway, 8) and the North railway line.
Landscape Park in Gänserndorf covers an area of approximately 70,000 square meters and is heavily used as a recreational area. The park offers pedestrian pathways as well as many bike paths along a willow-tree lined creek.
Kellergasse is especially beautiful with ravines, vineyards, cellar tours, baroque palaces, many museums, the Museum Niedersulz, and the most fascinating floodplains of Central Europe.
With the townhall historically rebuilt in 1925 Gänserndorf is protected as a historic monument and presents itself with 24 decorated windows during Christmas time.
Gänserndorf is well known for its summer events including art gallery openings, book readings and concerts, live music programs and many other festivals. The city and county of Gänserndorf host many activities in the warm months that are always well attended.
