Krems at the river Danube is worth a visit during any season! Dive into the region at the Nibelungen stream: The Wachau valley - UNESCO World Cultural Heritage!
There are not many cities in Austria which can offer such a great variety in cultural, historical or culinary offers as the attractive "double town" of Krems-Stein. Located in the eastern-most part of the Wachau valley, the town - more than 1000 years old - impresses its visitors with historical buildings in the old town centre, having been declared "World Heritage" by UNESCO in 2000.
Enjoy the different faces of the town when walking through the old town, marked by shops, restaurants and ...
... coffee shops.
Due to the realization of the "Kremser Kunstmeile" (art mile), Krems has set yet another sign of its cultural importance. An extensive sports offer combined with numerous large events (the annual Wachau-marathon, including more than 10.000 participants), adds to the existing range of possibilities.
The opening of the winter season is marked by the wine baptisms which take place around Martini (November).
Christmas atmosphere in the historical pedestrian zone as well as the traditional "Kiwanis Christkindlmarkt" (X-Mas market) in the Dominican monastery already make you feel the quiet and peaceful time of the year. The snow-covered booths in the old town with crafts, mulled wine and fresh biscuits complete the X-Mas offer.
