Guntramsdorf is a town in the district of Mödling in the Austrian state of Lower Austria. As part of the "Industrieviertel", the industrial region in the southeast of Lower Austria, it is well connected to the country capital Vienna. The local rail service "Badner Bahn" connects Guntramsdorf with the central district of Vienna in the north and popular spa resort destination Baden bei Wien in the south. In the west of the town lies the "Wienerwald" (also called Vienna Woods (/viˈɛ.nə/ /wʊdz/) in English[3]), an outlier of the Alpine foothills, featuring recreational forest areas and hiking trails, and the southeast of "Guntramsdorf" extends into the thermal basin called "Wiener Becken".

History

From the 1st to the 4th century the area was a part of Roman province Pannonia.

First documented mention of the town's likely founder Count Guntram dates back to the 9th century (859), when Count Kozel gifted lands to the monastery of Regensburg and Count Guntram's name appears being listed for giving testimony.[4]

After the Anschluss by Nazi-Germany in 1938 "Guntramsdorf" became a part of Vienna, just to regain its status as part of Lower Austria in 1954.
