Arrival in Krems
Krems – Dürnstein
Walk up into the vineyards to the tower with a view of the Blue Danube, the city Krems and the impressive monastery Göttweig. Cross the hills to the cosy Fesslhütte and reach the Dürnstein ruins on a trail with great views before reaching the banks of the Danube.
Take the ferry from Dürnstein to Rossatz. Continue past the largest apricot growing area of Austria, on old tracks up to Seekopf with stunning views of the Alps. Optionally take a walk along the Danube through orchards to the ferry.
Day off in Weißenkirchen
Umgeben von sonnigen Rebhügeln und grünen Wäldern erhebt sich die mächtige gotische Pfarrkirche von Weißenkirchen. Mit den Winzerdörfern Joching, Wösendorf und St. Michael bildet Weißenkirchen die größte Weinanbaugemeinde der Wachau. Weißenkirchen bietet viele Möglichkeiten für Ihren Ruhetag: Museen, schöne Wanderwege oder eine Schifffahrt auf der Donau. Nehmen Sie sich Zeit, um ein Glas Wachauer Wein in einem der Weinheurigen zu verkosten. Oder machen Sie eine kleine Wanderung auf der Achleitenrunde zur Einkehr beim Weinbauer!
Weißenkirchen – Spitz
Leave Weißenkirchen via the wine trail, past picturesque wine cellars to the climb up to Seiber. Walk through the forest at first quite steep to Buschandlwand where an observation platform allows stunning panorama views. An alternative route passes through vineyards to the famous wine grower community Spitz an der Donau.
Spitz – Melk
Cross the Danube by ferry to Maria Langegg. Here you follow St. Jacob’s trail to ruin Aggsbach. Visit the fortress with scenic views across the Danube valley and stop for a snack. Down you walk to Aggsbach where you catch the coach to Melk.
Melk – Krems
Visit the impressive monastery with beautiful grounds before you board the Danube boat. During the cruise to Krems you pass the highlights of the week, see all the vineyards as well as Spitz and Durnstein.
Departure or extension
You walk mainly on good trails and some paved vineyard paths. Depending on the route, you can make the stages more comfortable or more challenging. The peaks in the Wachau region are not high, but steep in places. Surefootedness, therefore, is required in some places. This week offers a perfect blend of nature, culture and culinary delight.
