At its southern shore, where the magnificent Baroque Abbey of Melk arises, begins the Wachau.

She reaches till the town of Krems which is ca 30 km downstream on the Danube. The Wachau is an UNESCO World Heritage Site, an internationally renowned wine growing area with steep terraces and stone walls and one of the most beautiful river valleys in the world:

  • Influenced by a rich history and extraordinary cultural treasures
  • A unique piece of art and garden of the senses
  • Has inspired many artists and thinkers
  • Popular meeting point for gourmets and connoisseurs from around the world.

The density is high for gourmet addresses: From award-winning restaurants, including some of the best in Austria, to cozy inns and quaint wine taverns, the portfolio of offerings is large. What the cooks serve in the Wachau originates from the region. For example, they are masters in preparing the typical apricot delicacies or game and river fish specialities. The Wachau also provides a wealth of historical and cultural highlights: Monastaries and churches, castles and chateaus as well as museums and exhibitions. Last but not least, recreation activities are numerous: hiking routes through the vineyards, easy cycling on both sides fo the river, 18 hole golf courses with rebats for our guests, all kinds of water sports and Danube - pleasure cruises. As Spitz is located in the heart of the Wachau, most attractions are reachable within 2-20 minutes. Vienna, the capital city of music and culture is only about 1 hour away and well worth a detour.

The Barock- Landhof Burkhardt team is happy to provide advice and guidance, depending on our guests' preferences and interests.
