Discover the region along the Danube

The Danube is the second longest river in Europe and the most important waterway in Austria. It has shaped the landscape and the people along its banks since time immemorial. The part of the Danube flowing through Lower Austria is 260 kilometers long and boasts some of the most scenic sections of this river valley. It is a genuine treasure for the province. The river proceeds from the Nibelungengau in the west through the Wachau, a UNESCO World Heritage landscape, and on to the gates of Bratislava in the east.
