Europe is one of the five inhabited traditional continents of the Earth. Physically and geologically, Europe is the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia, west of Asia. Europe is bounded to the north by the Arctic Ocean, to the west by the Atlantic Ocean, to the south by the Mediterranean Sea, and to the southeast by the waterways adjoining the Mediterranean to and including the Black Sea and the Caucasus Mountains. On the east, Europe is divided from Asia by the water divide of the Ural Mountains and by the Caspian Sea. Europe is the world's second-smallest continent in terms of area and third-largest continent after Asia and Africa in population.
Ansfelden is a town in Upper Austria and is located 289 meters above sea level, with a population of about 15300. The rivers Traun and Krems run through the municipality. The town is perhaps best known for being the birthplace of the composer and organist Anton Bruckner. The total area is 31.41 kilometers while population recorded in 31 December 2002 was 14,789.
Ansfelden has two museums, the Anton Bruckner Museum and a museum of musical instruments. It consists of a shield with a wavy white line running diagonally, representing two rivers. Above that wavy line, there is a green field with organ pipes over it, representing Anton Bruckner, and below the wavy line, there is a red field with a wheel, representing the city's industries, such as paper mills.

Ansfelden is the kind of town you daydream about. It is a city with endless recreational opportunities, rich history, and modern day luxuries.
