Hofkirchen im Traunkreis
Hofkirchen im Traunkreis - a peaceful holiday resort in the Upper Austrian Traunviertel region.
The name of the town has derived from a church (church = Kirche) that - according to historical documents - was situated near a feudal estate in the 13th century. Later on, a new church was built in the very town center. Renovated in 1976, the church is still a gem of plain, late Gothic architecture.
Hofkirchen has a lot to offer to the discriminating traveler. The town´s modern sport and leisure center, for instance, features a number of facilities and attractions that appeal to all the family: tennis courts, table tennis and curling facilities, soccer fields, a climbing wall, and a magnificent relax center - an oasis of rest and relaxation and a perfect place to soothe one´s aching muscles while assimilating all those fascinating impressions of a truly memorable (holi)day.
