Historic buildings and architecture from the middle-ages in the parts of Krems and Stein show for a meaningful past. The community, already mentioned in 995 as "urbs chremisa", was once the center of salt and wine trading and is one of the oldest towns in the country.

Strolling through the medieval alleyways, tasting wine in closed-down monasteries, relaxing in a café by the street, and amusedly smiling in the museum of caricatures: art and culture can be experienced and lived in Krems. The folk music festival "Glatt & Verkehrt" (Smooth & Traffic), the Lower Austrian Danube Festival, the film program of the Austrian Film Gallery, and the exhibitions at the internationally renowned Art Center Krems are the highlights of the town’s annual event calendar. As a member of the art-mile in Krems, the Danube University of Krems is a regular part of the local art and culture scene.
