In Everything’s Apricots (Alles Marille) in Krems, the highlight comes when the huge apricot cake is sliced.

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.

Stimmungsbild vom Festival Glatt & Verkehrt

Glatt&Verkehrt

GLATT&VERKEHRT is a festival in July that takes audiences on musical voyages of discovery around the globe. The program of events ranges from authentic, traditional and contemporary music from various cultures and brings artists from (nearly) all parts of the world to Krems and into the Wachau. What all of them have in common is a desire to explore their own musical roots – regardless of whether these roots are in folk music, jazz, classical or the avant-garde. Venues such as Göttweig Abbey, the Winzer Krems winery and Spitz castle serve as backdrops for these concerts by international musicians.
Date in 2020: July 10 to 26
