Introducing Krems An Der Donau
Krems an der Donau is the prettiest of the larger towns on the Danube and marks the beginning of the Wachau. It has a small university and some good eating and drinking, and also offers a very attractive historical aspect. Resting on the northern bank of the Danube, surrounded by terraced vineyards, it has been a centre of the wine trade for most of its history.
Krems has three parts: Krems to the east, the smaller settlement of Stein (formerly a separate town) to the west, and the connecting suburb of Und. Hence the local witticism: Krems und Stein sind drei Städte (Krems and Stein are three towns).
