Frauenhofen, a long-meadow village, is already documented in 985. Its name originates from "Fronhof" ("Lord's Court"). In 1344/46, the chartreuse Mauerbach acquired the village and built an estate and a church. After the disbanding of the ruling of the Mauerbachs the estate went into private property in 1810. Between 1873 and 1900, it belonged to the industrialist Fritz v. Hoffmansthal, whose nephew Hugo v. Hoffmannsthal, creator of "Jedermann", spent some time of his youth in Frauenhofen.

Nitzing is an old agricultural settlement, the village was first named in 1150. Nitzing is a typical "Lentil Meadow Village”, meaning, the unusually large village green is shaped like a lentil, which indicates a planned founding. The village chapel from the 19th century is located on the village green.

On the street from Tulln to Königstetten, on the right there is a Roman milestone from the 3rd century. It is still located in its original place and marks a Roman main connection street (Imperial street) with postal traffic.

Findings in the soil indicate a settlement in ancient times and then again in Carolingian times. Staasdorf is mentioned in a document of King Rudolf I. under the name of "Steurdorf". Until the end of the 19th century, the stream "Kleine Tulln" (formerly "Staasbach") runs through the village.

The late Baroque chapel in Staasdorf is consecrated to St. Eustachius and was built in 1739 for local services.

Already in 985, this village is documented as "Trebinse" (originating from the Slavic person's name "Trepa" in connection with "See" ("lake") for an old branch of the danube). In the time of the Babenbergers, Trübensee experienced an upward trend as northern mooring of Tulln's Danube crossing.

The fall of Tulln's "sister city" began when the concentration of grain trade on Korneuburg and with the moving of the Danube's main stream to the south. In the 17th century, Trübensee was only regarded as a village, its former significance documented by a memorial stone.
