    Wine Spring

    Wine Spring events in the Lower Austrian Danube region are a good opportunity in the wine year to sample the winemaker’s various wines and stock up on wine. Wine Spring takes place from late April to the beginning of May every year. Wachau Wine Spring is recommended, for example, as is Spring Awakening on the Wagram, the New Wine Fest in Göttlesbrunn and the 3-valley Wine Spring in the Kamp, Krems and Traisen Valleys.

    Loess Spring on the Wagram

    About 35 businesses in the Wagram region celebrate “Loess Spring” from mid-April till mid-May. Inns, wineries, excursion sights and restaurants invite visitors to explore and enjoy. The Wagram Treasure Map is your guide to this adventure rally. The treasure hunt is an entertaining way for wine, culture and nature enthusiasts to explore the mysteries of the typical loess landscape on their own during Wagram Loess Spring. One highlight of the Loess Spring is “Spring Awakening on the Wagram”, where the winemakers in the Wagram wine region open up their cellars in eight municipalities and invite visitors to sample the new vintages.

    Donaufestival

    Krems is the venue for the Donaufestival on two weekends at the end of April and the beginning of May. International musicians and artists present their works, performances and installations.
