City profile

In the eastern part of the Wachau, on the left bank of the Danube River, lies the one-thousand-year-old city of Krems.

Krems is located eighty kilometers west of Vienna and has a population of about 25,000. It is a neat town of courtyards, antique churches and ancient houses in the heart of vineyard country. It has some partially preserved town walls.

Historical buildings in the old town centre are listed as "world heritage" by UNESCO. Something not to be missed is the Weinstadt Museum Krems (Museum of Krems), housed in a restored Dominican monastery. The Gothic abbey is from the 13th and 14th centuries. Its gallery exhibits the paintings of Martin Johann Schmidt.

The City enjoys a great nightlife with many clubs and bars to choose from.
