Bike Touring Highlight
The so-called imperial indulgences in Achau, located at the confluence of the Schwechat, Triesting and Mödlingbach rivers, date from the time of Emperor Karl VI. and Empress Maria Theresa. The weir system was converted from 1998 to 2002 for flood protection. The building owner was the Republic of Austria.The course of the many rivers and brooks in this "water-rich" part of the Vienna basin is quite complicated: Above is the Laxenburg Palace Park, the Laxenburg Canal from a junction from the Triesting in Münchendorf, and the Heidbach, which is diverted from the Schwechat in the Baden area - also called Badner Mühlbach - is flowed through. The Laxenburg Canal undergoes the Schwechat to the south-east of the palace gardens. In Achau, the Krottenbach, the Mödlingbach and the outflow from the pond in the Laxenburg Palace Park, the Lobenbach, unite first. Immediately thereafter follow the Schwechat - also called "Aubach" here - and the Triesting. The Schwechat - the new name for all flowing waters - in turn has two rivers, the Mitterbach - the name for the Schwechat below the Kaiserabläser to Schwechat - and the original Schwechat, i.e. the Schwechat-Werksbach. Only in Schwechat itself, at the confluence of the Liesingbach, do these waters unite again to form Schwechat. (from a script by SC Maria Lanzendorf)
