The gentle, grapevine-covered hills, the medieval character of the villages and the riversides of the Danube merge to an incomparable entity.
The combination of river landscape, dry grassland, slope meadows, natural forests, terraced vineyards and orchards characterise Wachau.
Along the Danube – the Danube Cycle Route from Melk to Krems leads past a wide range of historic buildings in Wachau.
The 1000-year old town of Krems, as gate to the World Heritage Site Wachau, with its historic townscape, has managed to shape the future dynamically and to preserve the old carefully.
Krems at the Danube is worth a visit in any season!
