An incredible variety of nature and culture densely concentrated in one region ‒ that is the magic of the Wachau. A journey on the Wachau Railway opens up the wealth of this variety in all its breadth and depth. A unique work of art, a garden for the senses, which has inspired artists and philosophers over the years. An extremely popular meeting place for gourmets and connoisseurs from all over the world. The Wachau sits high up in the top league of international gourmet regions.

A little way removed from the main road, among ancient stonework, vineyards and blossoming slopes the Wachau has retained the essence of its being. This is the "stamping ground" of the Wachau Railway. It has been offering a rail service here for more than a hundred years and nowadays links Krems with Emmersdorf opposite Melk. On the picturesque route in the higher stretches you are afforded wonderful views over the beauty of the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage region.
