Danube Region in Lower Austria

Majestic River Meets a Picturesque Cultural Landscape

Cycle along the blue Danube and see who’s faster, the boats on the river or you, on your bicycle. Explore the Nibelungengau, a region steeped in legend, marvel at the famous terraced vineyards of the Wachau region and walk the winding alleys of charming villages. Top vineyard stays and wineries in the wine regions Kremstal, Kamptal, Traisental and Wagram are waiting for you. Beautiful abbeys, monasteries, fortresses, castles and buildings dating back to the Roman Empire are testimonies of the Danube region’s eventful history. At the end of the day, it’s time to enjoy a glass of wine with the hearty snack platter served in one of the traditional wine taverns (known as “Heuriger”) and share your best memories.

  • Join a boat cruise on the Danube river

Language Guide

You won’t believe it but the valley next to the village of Spitz divides Lower Austria into two time zones. Well, kind of. It’s one of the peculiarities of German language: While people living in the western part tend to say “Es ist Viertel über acht.” (“It’s a quarter past eight.”), people in the east refer to 8:15 as “viertel neun” (“quarter nine”, literally), meaning that a quarter of the ninth hour has already passed. Sounds complicated? It is. You better ask again if you’re not sure at what time to meet!
