World Heritage Site and land of well-being
World-class Rieslings are not the only grapes to flourish on the steep terraced slopes of the narrow Danube valley between Melk and Krems, and visitors will also find Chardonnay, Green Veltliner or Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains. Even the Romans were familiar with the region’s ideal winegrowing climate. And UNESCO had good reason to award Wachau its World Heritage Site status. The unique landscape with the winding alleyways in the old vineyard towns is easy to explore on foot, by bike or even ship.
