It is also home to several major breweries. One of Austria's oldest towns, it was established as a fortress in the 10th cent. and was chartered in 1212. The picturesque town retains part of its medieval walls, a 16th-century fortress, and a Gothic parish church (13th–15th cent.). The former town hall (16th cent.) now houses a museum that includes Roman relics. Lorch, incorporated into Enns in 1938, is on the site of a Roman camp established (c.A.D. 170) by Marcus Aurelius. Near Enns is the Augustinian monastery of St. Florian.

In its lower course, it flows along a hilly plain. Freshets occur in April and May. The mean flow rate is 210 cu m per sec. A hydroelectric power station is located on the river, which is used for timber flotation and is navigable in its lower course. The city of Steyr is located on the Enns.
