The municipality of Gerersdorf in the district of Sankt Pölten-Land was first mentioned in a document in 1040 - at that time under the name "Geroltestorff", derived from the prefect Gerold II, who worked in the 9th century. Today there are twelve cadastral municipalities in Gerersdorf - from Völlerndorf and Grillenhöfe to Hetzers - and Loipersdorf. The landscape is characterized by beautiful cycling and hiking routes and traditional inns. There are also many sporting and health initiatives for locals and guests.

Gerersdorf: By bike to the Pielachtal and the Wachau More than 20 kilometers of the easy-to-navigate Pielachtal cycle path run through Gerersdorf, Markersdorf and Prinzersdorf. The route leads into the heart of the Pielachtal - and on to Kirchberg. Cyclists are invited to "experience" both the green Pielachtal and the beautiful Wachau from here.

Moving Gerersdorf: from a hike of happiness to a path of ten thousand steps The active community organizes great hikes all year round: whether fit march, Whit Monday hike, pilgrimage or lucky hike. In addition, a Tut gut! - steps path awaits you in Gerersdorf - and a wide range of events for young and old.

Historical sights Historically significant is the parish church of St. John the Baptist: The hall church has a Gothic core as well as post-Gothic and Baroque elements. The church tower, which was destroyed in 1945, was completely renovated by 1954. The old vicarage is also an important contemporary witness in Gerersdorf: It originally dates from the 16th and 17th centuries.
