Zwentendorf an der Donau is a small market municipality in the Austrian state of Lower Austria. It is located at 48°21′N 15°54′E / 48.350°N 15.900°E / 48.350; 15.900, in the Tulln Basin on the southern bank of the Danube. The place attained public attention as the site of the only Austrian nuclear power station, which was completed but never went into operation. In a referendum on 5 November 1978, a narrow majority of 50.5% voted against putting the Zwentendorf nuclear plant into operation.[3]
