    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

    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.
