Where is Krems an der Donau?

Krems an der Donau is home to around 25,100 people and the fifth-largest town in Lower Austria. It belongs to the Wachau-Nibelungengau-Kremstal region and is about 70 km west of Vienna and 30 km north of St. Pölten. The idyllic Old Town is an UNESCO World Heritage Site. Krems looks back to a rich history of more than a thousand years to be discovered on a stroll through the picturesque little alleys. Today, the town is a commercial, cultural as well as educational centre. Starting at the Danube port, Wachau Donauschifffahrt offers ship rides to explore the most beautiful part of the river Danube: the Wachau. Have a look at our webcams for live pictures of Krems.
