"A town has and endures history" – Development of information points for contemporary history in Krems

Krems-Stein, the idyllic twin town, is considered to be the "Gateway to the Wachau" and a pioneering model of monument management with World Heritage status. At the same time, however, the town’s more recent history – and above all its contemporary history – is marred by numerous dark spots.

Our meadows, our asset: Protecting meadows through regional development in the Jauerling-Wachau Nature Park

The Nature Park owes its great diversity of plants and animals to its mosaic-like cultural landscape and the extensively used meadows. Global changes are forcing many agricultural businesses to specialise or shut up shop. A consequence of this are meadows that are no longer managed and increasingly turning into woodland. To counteract this trend and preserve diversity in the Jauerling-Wachau Nature Park, a nature park brand is under development. This label stands for management compatible with nature and gives the businesses’ products added ecological value.

Extension of season by Wachau Advent - Implementation 2018

Tourism in the Wachau has developed extremely well in recent years, especially in summer. The numbers of arrivals and overnight visitors are positive and rising. However, summer isn’t the only season to be experiencing an upward trend – off-peak times for tourists in the spring and late autumn are also increasingly in demand. A range of initiatives has been developed, especially during the cooler months, to attract visitors from Austria and abroad.

Counting visitors and gauging public opinion in the town of Dürnstein

The historic town of Dürnstein, with its many iconic buildings of historic importance, such as the blue tower of the abbey church or the castle ruins, has been a hotspot of activity in the Wachau tourism region from day one. The limited space available, the lack of coordination between the visiting times of different tour operators and the many options available for coming to visit the town all result in very high visitor numbers. This is creating an ever stronger sense of exploitation amongst the town’s few permanent residents (according to a recent count, only 93 people live within the town walls) and of being a stranger in one’s own home.

MICE-Positioning Krems and its surrounding area

A tourism development strategy for the year 2030 was developed for the city of Krems in 2015 and 2016. It defines five core competencies, one of which is economic and educational tourism. Within the scope of this project, targeted measures and sales-orientated concepts should be developed to achieve a clear positioning in the MICE segment (Meetings/Incentives/Conventions/Exhibitions).

Overhaul of the Wachau World Heritage Centre

The World Heritage Centre at the boat station in Stein, in the municipality of Krems, was opened in September 2011. Ever since then, it has proven to be extraordinarily stable in terms of its design and substance. However, seven years later, some of the information is no longer up to date and a few things have happened in the region in recent years that are not represented on the information panels in the World Heritage Centre.
