The Große Gusen and Kleine Gusen form the river Gusen from Katsdorf- Breitenbruck. Most of the Gallneukirchen basin is drained by the Gusen. From the Katsdorf district of Lungitz, the Gusen flows south to St. Georgen an der Gusen through the narrow Gusental. It flows into the Danube at Langenstein .
The Gusen is 17.5 km long, together with the Great Gusen, usually regarded as the upper reaches, it comes to a length of 39.8 km. The Gusen has water quality class II, shortly before the confluence with the Danube II to III (status 2007).
Gusengasse has been named after the river in Vienna since 1953 .
