The City of St. Pölten is the provincial capital of Lower Austria (Niederösterreich) and is built on top of an ancient Roman city. Officially established in 1050, St. Pölten offers all the amenities expected of a modern-day capital. Despite being the largest city in Lower Austria (over 52,000 population), it has a small town atmosphere that is perfect for developing well-rounded student-athletes. The province of Lower Austria charms with vineyards nestled along the Danube valley paired with great music festivals in castles perched it the countryside, which make it a perfect getaway for lovers of music, nature, and wines.
