About Krems

Just an hour’s drive from the Austrian capital Vienna and Vienna International Airport, Krems is an increasingly popular location for domestic and international conferences, symposiums, seminars and meetings.

Exhibitions and festivals areinvigorating the whole year round. The historic city centre of Krems – listed as part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Wachau – is a treasure trove for sightseers, shopping enthusiasts and connoisseurs. Many hiking and cycling paths lead through the picturesque nature.

Only few cities have so many cultural and culinary temptations to offer. Thanks to its location at the gateway to the Wachau, you will at every turn find pretty spots to drink a delicious glass of wine or to taste the specialties of the region – whether in a traditional wine tavern (“Heuriger”), in a cosy country inn or a gourmet restaurant.

When you think of Krems, you probably think of pleasant hours spent with a good glass of wine. No wonder, because Krems is the heart of the wine region Kremstal and the gateway to the Wachau. Winegrowing has a long tradition along the banks of the Danube River, even the Romans already cultivated it. Already in the Middle Ages, the local vintners founded Austria’s first wine growers guild. If there were an Austrian wine capital, it would probably be Krems.

The five colleges and universities count approximately 13,000 students. Repeatedly, this historical city opens itself to the new. Starting in the 1990s, various modern buildings were built. Some of them combine a historic flair with modern accents. Noteworthy examples are the Danube University in Krems-Stein, the Gozzoburg castle in the historic city centre and the Krems Art Gallery on the art mile in Krems. The shipping and World Heritage Centre on the banks of the Danube River presents itself in an impressively modern fashion.
