Mayor of Wolfsthal speaks Slovak

Uncategorized Aren’t you afraid that Wolfsthal will change to a Slovak village – that there will be more Slovaks than Austrians?

Gerhard Schödinger: Not at all. Firstly, we are not planning any further big development projects, secondly, the citizenship state in one’s passport is of second-range importance to me. People living here are simply Wolfsthal people to me and therefore members of the community.

I always tell the skeptics that we all have the same visions on how to live well. So where’s the problem? And according to this rule we behave in Wolfsthal and building the infrastructure testifies this. We’re glad that life came to the community together with young families.


An interview with Wolfsthal’s mayor Gerhard Schödinger about Wolfsthal’s development, its focus on middle class and young families, about relationship to Bratislava or Vienna and about details of cooperation between villages and city parts.

BAUM Project – strategy of development for Bratislava and neighboring region


BAUM (BratislavA Umland Management) is a project of transborder cooperation between Bratislava and neighboring Austrian villages. Its aim is to coordinate the urbanistic plan of Bratislava, its city parts and Austrian villages and towns.
The project has been running since 2011. Part of the larger public discussion had been the eventual building of hydropower plant in the region and a pipeline. One of the most recent outputs is Urbanistic study of development of border parts of Bratislava and neighboring villages. Bratislava as being the main partner of the project organizes a public discussion on the results of architectural competition for this study until July 25th.

As a part of it, the citizens can attend a public meeting on July 7th at 6 pm in the Mirror Hall of Primatial Palace in Bratislava.
