National Park Community of Molln

Molln, Oberösterreich, Österreich
A warm welcome to the
Molln is the centre of the central Steyr Valley and the Upper Austria Limestone Alps National Park. Limestone Alps.
With 191.3 m², Molln is the fourth largest municipality in the province of Upper Austria. Natural monuments such as the "Rinnende Mauer" and the "Steyrdurchbruch" are located here.

Everyone knows the pilgrimage church Frauenstein with the famous Schutzmantelmadonna by Gregor Erhardt.
With more than a hundred kilometres of hiking and cycling trails, Molln as the centre of the mountain bike region invites you to engage in sports in a completely intact natural landscape. The National Park Centre hosts interesting events and exhibitions throughout the year.

For centuries, a special musical instrument has been made in Molln: the Jew's harp. More than 30 master craftsmen were once engaged in the production of the so-called "trouser bag instrument". It is said to have an eroticising effect, and many a "Menschakamma" opened up at night after playing it to great effect. Recently, the Jew's harp has enjoyed great popularity again.

The feel-good community in the heart of the Kalkalpen National Park is looking forward to your visit!
