Wachau - World Heritage
In the year 2000, the cultural landscape Wachau was added to the list of the UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage with the dongles Melk and Göttweig and the old town of Krems.

The Wachau River is a river landscape with a length of more than 30 km between Krems an der Donau and Melk and is the breakthrough valley of the Danube through the Bohemian Massif. It pays off as border zone to the Austrian granite and gneiss highlands. The highest elevations are the Jauerling (960 m) and Sandl (723 m). The Wachau lies on the border of two Lower Austrian quarter landscapes, with the south belongs to the Mostviertel and the north to the Waldviertel. To her also belongs the Donauseitental Spitzer Graben.

  • WINE

The Wachau wines are known worldwide for their excellent quality. The tradition of winegrowing has its origins already at the time of the Roman settlement of the Wachau and experiences a first heyday under the rule of the Carolingians. In the Middle Ages, the Wachau wines are well known far beyond the borders of Austria. If you have an affinity to wine, the Wachau offers many opportunities to pursue your interests.
But not only the Wachau wines are worth a tasting; The nearby regions Kremstal, Kamptal and Traisental are also part of every wine tour in Lower Austria.

  • APRICOT

The Chinese already knew the apricot 3000-2000 BC. The route of propagation in Western Europe may have been via Italy, Spain, France, while the Danube countries, according to recent research, received the apricot via the Pontus and the Donauweg. The oldest evidence to date for the term apricot "Maryln" in the Danube region can be found in a letter collection from the Starhemberg Archives in Eferding near Linz. (Letter of July 23, 1509) In the capitulars of Charlemagne, who cite all the fruits of culture at that time, we do not specifically mention the apricot, since it was added to the peaches from the 3rd century until the 16th century counted. From the French "abricot" penetrates the name "apricot" to Western and Northern Germany, where it is still used today. In southern Germany Switzerland and Austria prevailed the name "apricot", which probably goes to the Italian "armellino" and similar names. These originated again from Latin "armeniaca", originating from Armenia. From the terms "Amarellen", "Morellen" was the word "apricot".

  • HEURIGER

As a wine tavern in Austria, both a young wine and the locality, where the wine is served. It can be a Buschenschank, the seasonal limited serving of the production company or a wine tavern run as a hospitality business. The Weinhauer's right to sell his own wine in his own house without a special license goes back to a circular ordinance of the Emperor Joseph II of 1784 in Austria. The tap was originally held to present the storm and wine of the current harvest to the winegrowers and the local population and the immediate ara.
