"Wachau" Top 5 Page for this destination Krems an der Donau by Anjutka

Krems an der Donau Travel Guide: 52 reviews and 269 photos

Great River and Great Wines

I had liked to call this page "Wachau" which is the name of the valley of the Donau (Danube in English) between Melk and Krems. But in VT database Wachau is a totally unknown place in Germany's Far East in Saxony. Because Krems is the biggest town in the area I call the page after it. If you want to see more pics and excellent descriptions of the various places here see Globetrott's pages on Melk, Krems, Duernstein, Aggstein etc.
My visit here was rather short, on the way back "home" from Vienna and an overnight stop in Strass im Strassertale, only 10 km from Krems where we had a great wine tasting.

Pros and Cons

    Good tips on Krems! The Wachau is an area that I still need to discover properly - although I have been Vienna based for over 5 years. Mike

    Great to read that you enjoyed the wines of Austria - by the way, I am the producer of the Zweigelt you enjoyed with Lothar ... Krems is a wonderful town, I spent about a year there when I went to viticultural school.

    The valley of dusk was filled with a silver-grey fragrance, like the moon seeping through clouds. But it wasn't night. The silver-grey fragrance of the dark valley caused my sleepy thoughts to blur, and silently I sank... ~ Hugo von Hofmannsthal, Austria
