At the time of National Socialism, about 120,000 people died of exhaustion in the Mauthausen concentration camp or in its annexes in Gusen, due to excessive heavy labor or to extermination by SS-Totenkopfverbände (SS-TV) - meaning "Death's-Head Units" - the SS organization responsible for administering the Nazi concentration camps for the Third Reich. Now the former Mauthausen-Gusen concentration camp has become a memorial place, in order to keep alive the memory of all victims of Nazism and to honour the obligation to remember the Nazi crimes against humanity. Thanks to Austria Bus, you can of course rent a bus for excursions to the Mauthausen-Gusen Memorial, especially for bus trips or school excursions from Vienna, Linz and Salzburg.

Bus excursions to Steyr

Licence: Creative Commons.The oddly fact that the town that has given its name to Styria - "Steiermark" in German - is now located in Upper Austria may be explained by the splitting of the Babenberg inheritance after the death of the last member of this ducal family in 1246. Ottokar II of Bohemia got Austria, whereas Hungary obtained Styria. As for Steyr, this splitting meant that the town should inevitably be reorganized, which has been fruitful. Thanks to a clever business policy formerly pursued, Steyr has won prestige and prosperity, which can still qualify this town now. Beside numerous buildings from the Gothic or the baroque or even the Renaissance periods in Steyr's Old Town, there are a lot of sights worth seeing in Steyr, among which are first of all the Christkindl Pilgrimage Church or the Christkindl Post Office, a purpose-built temporary post office which opens every year from late November onwards. Thanks to it, you can have your Christmas greetings sent to your family and friends all over the world decorated with the Austrian special Christmas postage stamp. Austria Bus will organize with great pleasure your bus excursions to Steyr - optionally with the visit of the nearby Kremsmünster Abbey - as well as bus tranfers from or to Steyr and throughout Austria.

Bus trips to Enns

He became a martyr and at a later time, he has become the patron saint of Upper Austria as well as of the firemen throughout the world. More recently, Enns was for ten years the border town between the American and Soviet zones of occupation. In Enns, the most important places of interest are the remains of the town's medieval fortifications, the City Tower on the Main Square of Enns, the modern St Lawrence Basilica of Lorch with its Roman building remains or the Ennsegg Palace which is also a venue for a large number of performances and for other cultural activities.
