Hi! A few days ago I did a half day trip to the small town Krems, which is situated at the Danube and can be seen as the door to world famous Wachau. The climate is mild and the region is famous for wine. Yet the main reason for my trip was not the wine but the beautiful old town of Krems. I saw this town last time about 20 years ago, and I did not much preparation for this little journey. Just took the train and looked for the wonders that might wait for me in Krems. I brought three or four photos from there... :lol: - so let me show you the pics and tell you the story of my little Krems adventure.
First the train is rolling through the vast plain of Tullner Feld, before reaching a long, not very high hill called "Wagram". This hill consists of glacial loess which is a perfect ground for vineyards.
Here we see a typical railway station in a rural environment in Lower Austria - Kirchberg am Wagram:
Again from the train I took a pic of the loess terraces of Wagram. The little houses build what we call a "Kellergasse" - nice rows of small buildings with only one purpose - wine.
Finally, after one hour's trip from Vienna, we have reached our destination: Krems, we are coming!
(You see that I talk to you like a tourist guide, you shall feel like being taken by the hand and make this little journey with me. )
We step out of the railway station and find ourselves under a kind of long roof which surely makes sense to protect passengers who move to taxi or bus from the rain...
... but first it hides from us what we see when we reach the end of the construction: A first glance into the old town of Krems! :banana:
It's a hot day, but I'm sure you will climb any mountain with me to get nearer to this very, very promising historic buildings up there.
The B&W photo of the road from post #141 is definitively one of the most scenic photos I've seen recently. Keep up the good work! I really enjoy looking your presentations of the lovely Austrian towns and nature.
