Travel video about destination Wachau Cruise in Austria.
A cruise through the Wachau is one of the most beautiful experiences on the Danube, thirty six kilometres along Austria’s romantic Danube Valley. A journey to mediaeval castles and towns, plus religious Baroque art and idyllic nature. Our cruise through the Wachau begins in Stein, one of Austria‘s oldest cultural landscapes. Sacred monuments recall the triumph of Catholicism over Protestantism and more than a hundred buildings provide an authentic picture of the old town. Krems resembles a mediaeval city. The wrought iron signs of middleclass dwellings of varous building epochs still shine out today in century-old splendour with the narrow streets of the old town and Italian-looking city palaces whose well-preserved sgraffiti and stucco work recalls the prosperity of yesteryear. Dürnstein is a place with a long history and unique appearance. A small, mediaeval town of both legend and world renown and with a remarkable Augustinian Canon Monastery whose Baroque architecture was created by Jacob Prandtauer. The market town of Spitz is situated in the heart of the Wachau and is connected to the Danube steam navigation system that, from1829, made the river more accessible. A sixteenth century parish church is located within the town’s fine market square, flanked by the fine old buildings of the local vine growers. The view over the village of Melk is overwhelming. A spiral staircase leads down into Melk’s monastery church whose sumptuous interior architecture is unique. The Wachau is a total experience, a wonderful melting pot of culture, nature and history.
