Zwettl

"Svetla" – is the old Slavic name of Zwettl means the "light one" or “clearance”. The town was erected at the meeting of the Kamp and Zwettl rivers, in the geographic centre of the Waldviertel.

An attractive old town is particularly well known for the nearby Cistercian abbey, founded by the Count of Kuenringen in 1138. These Bavarian settlers, led by the infamous Kuenring clan, penetrated deep into the Forest Quarter. The region of Zwettl, had previously been populated by Slavic villages.

The Kuenringinians erected a castle and a church on a hill above the convergence of the Kamp and Zwettl rivers. At the foot of this castle, on a plateau above the two rivers the settlement of Zwettl evolved. Zwettl has enjoyed town status since 1200 when Duke Leopold VI, granted special rights to "his Zwettl citizens".
