Description:
Spielberg is a city located in the Bezirk Knittelfeld in Styria, Austria.

General

The city of Spielberg, with a population of about 5,000 inhabitants, is located north of the Mur in the east of Aichfeld, between the cities of Zeltweg and Knittelfeld. The municipal area of Knittelfeld has grown together with a part of the township. From 1986 to 2009 Spielberg was a Marktgemeinde. On October 1, 2009 it became a “Stadtgemeinde”. Within the district you can find both municipal and countrified mintages.

Structure

The township is composed of 9 Katastralgemeinden. Pausendorf is the major Katastralgemeinde with 1500 inhabitants. The Katastralgemeinde Spielberg is only a small part of the township but gives the whole municipality its name.

Politics

The SPÖ has been the dominant position of the township since 1960, when the countrified township became a municipality. This was triggered when a number of industrial firms moved to the township, above all the Austria Antriebstechnik AG (ATB).

Economy

Spielberg is home to the Red Bull Ring (formerly known as A1-Ring and Österreichring). From 1970 until 1987 and from 1997 until 2003 the Grand Prix of Austria took place there.

Trivia

  • American film director and producer Steven Spielberg gets his last name from his descent from Hungarian Jews living in 17th-century Spielberg.
