The Triesting flows through the municipality . The market town lies between the southwest and northeast parts of the Vienna Basin at an altitude of 202  m above sea level. A. In Trumau, 3709 people live on an area of ​​18.57 km² (as of January 1, 2020).

The place Hürbenau has gone .


The place was brought into being in the High Middle Ages by Leopold IV from Babenberg through a donation to the Heiligenkreuz Abbey and is documented in 1139. After the first few years of monastic life in Heiligenkreuz, Abbot Gottschalk saw no prospect of financial sustainability for the young founding of the monastery and therefore asked the ruler to add the Trumau estate, a classic monastic grangie .

After the settlement was devastated in the second half of the 15th century, the Grangie suffered further serious damage in the Turkish years 1529 and 1683. A new settlement by Croatian farmers took place around 1550–1600. In the course of the resettlement, Trumau was raised to a parish in 1588. The foundation came about in connection with the Counter Reformation in the second half of the 16th century. Both the sovereign Emperor Rudolf II and Bishop Urban von Trennbach , the head of the Diocese of Passau , gave Abbot Ulrich Molitor permission to build it in 1583 . Until then, the area was part of the Traiskirchen parish , which in turn is incorporated into Melk Abbey. In 1588 the Trumau church was consecrated. Since then, the parish has mostly been looked after by a priest monk from the Heiligenkreuz convent. They have been documented by name since 1613. The rectory fell victim to the flames of 1683.

In the Trumau cemetery there is a Russian military cemetery consisting of a mass grave. There is no information on the number of Soviet soldiers buried here in April 1945.

Place name

The Middle High German word "drum" means end piece. In this case, the name could indicate the end of a floodplain landscape , which can be deduced from the geographic location of the drier southwest and the wetter northeast part of the Vienna Basin.

In historical sources the current place name appears in various forms. The vernacular has often spoken of "drumðo".

coat of arms

Blazon : In a blue shield, a natural-colored hand ready to take an oath, which hovers over two crossed silver hammers.

The coat of arms of the market town of Trumau originally consisted of a blue shield on which a broad, skin-colored oath hand could be seen, which is supposed to remind of the solemn oath of Margrave Leopold IV. In 1971 another element was awarded. Since then, two crossed silver hammers and above the oath hand can be seen in the coat of arms. The new elements symbolize industry and commerce. The importance for Trumau of the positive development of industry and commerce in the 19th and 20th centuries was decisive for the awarding of these symbols.

Parish church

The abbot of Heiligenkreuz initiated the construction of the church in the 16th century and engaged the master builder “Maister Andre Stuber zu Paden”. The stone carving was carried out by Italian masters , the brothers Elias and Alexius Payos from the monastery’s own quarry . It was completed under Abbot Johannes Rueff . Bishop Hector von Passau consecrated the post-Gothic Trumau parish church on February 22, 1588 under the patronage of John the Baptist . The church building was enlarged in 1845.


A moat, a dam and a mill with a mill stream probably existed in connection with the grangie in the 12th century. Towards the end of the First Austrian Turkish War (between 1548 and 1558) the enclosed courtyard was rebuilt; numerous renovations and new buildings took place. Under Gábor Bethlen in 1621, Hungarian rebels burned the building down. In 1650, at the instigation of Abbot Michael Schnabel, the reconstruction began and ended in 1667. Emperor Leopold I stayed several times in Trumau Castle, which also served as an administration building, school and parsonage. In the course of the Fifth Austrian Turkish War in 1683 the castle was badly damaged. During the subsequent renovations, the towers were significantly changed. The castle was damaged several times by fires. Historically secured fires occurred in 1811 and 1880; others came along. The original pointed roof was replaced by a flatter one during the restoration. In the years 1993 to 1995 extensive restorations were carried out on the castle, during which two sundials in the inner courtyard could be exposed. Attempts have been made to adapt the towers to an engraving by Georg Matthäus Vischer from 1672 . The International Theological Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family (ITI for short) has been located on the grounds of the palace since 2009 .

Plague column

The plague / Trinity column, erected between 1720 and 1730, originally stood at the main intersection of the community next to the bell tower. In the course of a renovation in 2007, it was set up around 200 m away at the rectory.
