    Pochlarn to Krems 45.9km

    June 23, 2016 in Austria

    The sun was actually shining when we got up today..that's a first. Took a stroll through Melk before hopping on the bikes and heading to Krems.

    Lots of little villages, each with at least 1 church 😉. Stopped asking the way for coffee and the local rooster came to say 'Hello'.

    We got to the Wachau Valley where vineyards and cherry trees are the crop of choice.Read more

    Melk - Krems

    May 20, 2016 in Austria

    I had as much of a look at the benedictine Abbey of Melk as I could for free. It is very photogenic and also happens to house a girls' secondary school.

    Then there was a long stretch cycling through the Wachau region, famous for the growing of wine. The scenery was what I think many if us imagine Austria to be like.

    As it was a short day I arrived in Krems at 3pm and experienced my first beer festival complete with brass band. While there I met a delightful and handsome austrian couple (Florian and Sabrina, pictured) who had met in Eastbourne but whose homes were only kilometres apart. He is studying dentistry and she languages although she already speaks more than 4. Nett dich zu treffen!

    Wednesday. Krems and cruising Wachau va

    August 30, 2017 in Austria

    We did a 3hr tour this morning of the Gottweib Abbey, near Krems. It is a Benedictine Abbey first constructed in about 1100 in wood. This burned down and the current structures are from 1700s. There are 42 monks who serve the local area. They produce several good wines which we tasted. All good! And apricot liquors and scnapps which we also got to try. We were back for lunch and now a cruise through the Wachau Valley for 3 hrs. Complete with wine and waltzes! Apple strudel later. The most scenic part of the Romantic Danube cruise.Read more

    Train to Krems on the Danube

    July 16, 2017 in Austria

    We left Salzburg by train to stay in the Wachau area on the Danube. This area is UNESCO protected for its cultural, architectural, and agricultural heritage. There are many monasteries, ancient castle ruins, and this is Austria's wine-grape growing region -- Greuner Veltliner being one of the prime varieties.

    The town of Krems is small and very quiet, especially when arriving on a Sunday. We were a little concerned when we met our Airbnb host and she had us follow her through a construction zone to get to our apartment. They are renovating a very old building, but our unit was perfectly fine (whew!). We strolled around the town and down to the river to see where we would catch the ferry the next day. Dinner in a real beer garden!

    Ice Cream in Krems

    May 19, 2015 in Austria

    Scenic Cruising: at about 2:20pm we pass the Aggstein Castle in the Wachau Valley. 2:34 pm. One Lord of this castle would kidnap people, and offer them a choice. Either they could pay the ransom or agree to jump off the cliff to their death. Maypole in small village. Vineyards over church steeple. Ruins of the castle Spitz. 2:37 pm.

    2:55 Weissenkirche was Protestant church attacked in thirty years war, has defensive wall,

    3:00 pm Durnstein Castle. Richard the Lionhearted was imprisoned here after he went on a crusade. His mother ransomed him by paying 26 metric tons of silver.

    In the afternoon we walked into Krems with John and Dawn; Heather and Don; Mel and his wife, and a few others. We got separated fairly quickly. We hung with Heather and Don and went to get gelato. John told us about two churches he had found, the Dom and one other church, the Piaristenkirche. We took photos in both. In the evening we had a Viennese buffet with accordion and guitar players strolling among the tables. I tasted schnapps, but didn't care for it. I ate a small cheese plate, and that is all I really wanted. However, when we went back into the kitchen, there was a serving line with Wiener schnitzel, bratwurst and all sorts of Viennese food that I could not resist.

    Doonau

    June 28, 2015 in Austria

    Jõudsime Doonau äärde, sõidame mööda seda nüüd umbes 30 kilomeetrit.

    Leidsime teeäärest lõpuks enda kauaoodatud murelid ka, seal oli laua peal karbid ja jäetud teine karp "kassa" kuhu saime enda raha panna, kedagi seal ei olnud. Samuti saime maitsta ka aprikoose (võtsime paar tükki puu küljest), alguses arvasime, et need on toored aga ei olnud kuid täiesti teistsuguse maitsega kui Eestis on, need olid palju magusamad ja täiuslikumad.Read more

    Heurigenschank veinimõis

    July 7, 2015 in Austria

    Vana papi ja mammi teevad veini juba mitmendat põlve.

    Peale veinimõisa külastust otsustasime esimest korda selle reisi jooksul valida erinevad marsruudid hotelli. Jaanus ja Tea sõitsid otse Brno peale mööda väiksemaid teid ja meie Anu ja Märdiga läksime Viini külje alt mööda kiirteid. Brnosse jõudsid Jaanus ja Tea ennem, aga peale seda sõitsime neist mööda kui nad tankla peatust tegid.Read more
