Tulln an der Donau is a historic town in the Austrian state of Lower Austria, the administrative seat of Tulln District. Because of its abundance of parks and gardens, Tulln is often referred to as Blumenstadt .GeographyThe town is situated in the centre of the Tullnerfeld basin stretching to the Vienna Woods in the south, about 40km northwest of the Austrian capital Vienna. The main part of its built-up area is located on the southern bank of the Danube river.The municipal area comprises the cadastral communities of Frauenhofen, Langenlebarn-Oberaigen, Langenlebarn-Unteraigen, Mollersdorf, Neuaigen, Nitzing, Staasdorf, Trübensee, and Tulln proper.HistoryTulln is one of the oldest towns in Austria. Although it was settled in pre-Roman times (the name Tulln is presumably of Celtic origin), it gained importance as the Roman fort of Comagena (Comagenis). In the final years of Roman rule, Saint Severinus of Noricum is said to have visited the city, saving it from the barbarians.The town was first mentioned as Tullina in a 859 deed, when the area was part of the Bavarian marcha orientalis. It gained importance as a residence of the noble House of Babenberg, ruling as Austrian margraves from 976 onwards. Tulln lost its significance after the Babenbergs relocated their residence to Vienna.
