Gloggnitz is located in the South Eastern part of Lower Austria. The town is surrounded by a green ring of forests.

Gloggnitz was settled the first time in the Palaeolithic Age. The name "Gloggnitz" has a Slavic origin. The ending "itz" shows this. The meaning of the name could be the expression of a "chortling brook".

The first time when Gloggnitz was mentioned in a document was in 1094.

In the middle of the 19th century many facturies occur in Gloggnitz. Mostly factories in the textile and timber industry. 

In 1950 Gloggnitz received the first female mayor in Austria (Zenzi Hölzl).
