Wachaubahn Rail Line

Climb aboard and enjoy the Wachau.

The Wachaubahn winds its way between and along vineyards, ancient walls and the mighty Danube on its way through the Wachau from Krems to Emmersdorf. This way of experiencing the Wachau is unparalleled in its intensity! The diversity of nature and culture in such a compact area is what makes the Wachau so magical. Traveling on the Wachaubahn unlocks this diversity in its full breadth and depth. It has already been operating well over a century (since 1909) and today serves as the rail connection between Krems and Emmersdorf.
