I was lucky enough to be able to study in Krems, another well-known city in the Wachau area. Like that, I know this region very well. This was also the time when I fell in love with it - the very charming landscape, the vineyards, the ancient villages and the culinary delicacies make it a very special place. No wonder that the landscape has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.We will be far away from the crowds, walking the hidden paths and silent forest trails.
