Krems at the river Danube is worth a visit during any season! Dive into the region at the Nibelungen stream: The Wachau valley - world cultural heritage of the UNESCO!
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.
