Wels is a beautiful city that has a location northwest of Austria. Wels belongs to the state of Upper Austria and in 2008 the population measured at about 58 000. The city is located 25 km southwest of Austria’s third largest city Linz. Wels is located some distance from the German border in the west and northwest, and it is about equal distance from Wels to the Czech Republic, which borders Austria to the north.

Wels is a superb city to travel to, both because of the museums and the zoo, but also because the area was a city already under Roman times. Wels got Roman city rights around the year 120 under the name Ovilava, and at that time lay population of 18 000. The city lost importance after Romer’s fall, but came into the story again in the Middle Ages. This time amounted to the city a trading center, and Wels was granted city status in 1222.

There is a small airport in Wels, but it is only for civilian aircraft.
