Wachau Cultural Landscape

Wachau, a landscape particularly worth seeing, is nestled between Melk and Krems in the Danube Valley. The original structure of Wachau dates back to the 11th and 12th centuries. What is clearly visible in the structure of the towns is the development of the settlements. Both the building fabric and the arrangement of the houses have remained unchanged since the late Middle Ages. Wachau has been an inspiring place for romantic legends for centuries, there are very many castles and palaces full of historical love stories from the Middle Ages. To truly experience the Wachau landscape, visitors can follow the course of the Danube, which flows through the countryside. In the town of Melk, the Benedictine Abbey lies along the way as a unique piece of Baroque architecture. Although Wachau is a year-round destination because of its festivals and markets, the best time to visit would be from March to October. A boat trip on the Danube or a ride on the Wachau Railway will become an unforgettable experience, so you can remember the whole valley in a special way.
