The capital of Lower Austria since 1986 is Sankt Pöltenmarker (most recent capital town in Austria), but formerly, the capital of Lower Austria was Viennamarker, even though Vienna is not properly part of Lower Austria. With a land area of 19,174 km² and a population of 1.6 million people, it is the largest state in Austria, and in terms of population second only to Vienna (which also is a federal state).


Located east of Upper Austria, Lower Austria derives its name from where it is situated on the Danube River, which flows from west to east. The state borders on Slovakiamarker, the Czech Republicmarker, and on the other Austrian states of Upper Austria, Styriamarker and Burgenlandmarker. The state surrounds Vienna.


The history of Lower Austria is very similar to the History of Austria. Many castles are located in Lower Austria. Klosterneuburg Abbeymarker, located here, is one of the oldest abbeys in Austria. Also, before World War II, Lower Austria had the largest number of Jews.

Administratively, the state is divided into 21 districts (Bezirke), and four Statutarstädte. In total, there are 573 municipalities within Lower Austria.
