ROL Cruise recommends…
Take a wine tour
Positioned centrally in the Austrian wine-making region, a visit to Winzer Krems for a tour of the local vineyard is a must for any budding sommelier (or any wine lover!) Walk through the vineyards and learn about the winemaking process in full before sampling a glass (and perhaps buying a bottle to take home too.)
Explore fairy-tale castles
Castle lovers rejoice as there are plenty of options around Krems. Whether you choose to visit Aggstein Castle, a 12th-century structure which offers stunning views over the Danube or Schonbuhel Castle, a fairy-tale castle by the river, then you’re sure to have your breath taken away.
Walk the old town walls
Many more historical cities around Europe were once built within city walls, and now, with the well preserved, these walls can still be visited. In Krems, the best way to experience this is by visiting Steiner Tor. Steiner Tor is one of the four original gates that surrounded the city and allowed access in and out of the wall. Although only one has been preserved, it is still a marvel to see.
Get artistic at the Karikaturemuseum
For those who want to enjoy the more light-hearted side or art, we suggest a visit to the Karikaturemuseum. The cartoon museum and the only Austrian museum for satirical art is a fantastic way to spend some of your time in Krems. Filled with mainly political caricature, humorous drawings and comics, there is plenty to keep the eyes occupied, and provide a good chuckle!
