- Krems, Stein and Tulln

Daily trip with family

semi-overcast 27 °C

Three towns in Lower Austria, all nearby. Actually they are the "gate" to Wachau Valley, which lays between Krems to Melk. I did this Krems-Melk way by ship, going with Danube, but it also possible to make by bicycle. There are 40 kilometres in length and it was already settled in prehistoric times. Wachau Valley is the origin of the wine growing tradition in Austria, and, if you ask me - they product great wines there!

Krems

is the biggest of this trio and the most interesting : few museums, shopping street, nice architecture of Gothic and Baroque times.

Stein

is a village that connected to Krems, actual part of Krems novadays. Stein is charming, and it is my favorite from those three. Because of Stein was built in 16th century, it what they call here Renaissance, and it is - it is really North Renaissance.

Tulln

Tulln is also very nice. It is a bit less known for mass tourism, mostly Austrian come there for short daily trips. Some architecture and some river life, petite train runs thrue the streets, but actually it's walkable and very little place.

Tulln is the birthplace of great Austrian artist Egon Schiele and you may visit Schiele Museum.

Also there are 12 km of Water Park for walking, cycling and water-ways (the best choice) by canoe or by pedal water-bikes.

Hearthy food in local tavernas.
