Wachau – the palaces, castles, museums, cloisters, wildlife parks, caves, lakes, rivers and gorgeous landscapes of Salzburg,
Upper Austria and Lower Austria arrange themselves along the “Romantic Road” from
Salzburg to Vienna like pearls on a chain.
On the journey from Salzburg to Vienna you will find traces of the first travelers that
used this route. Romans for instance, who built forts and gave towns like Wels and
Enns their names. Benedictines and Augustinians settled at important and distinctive
spots and founded monasteries where they served god and science and made statements of their power and wealth with grand buildings.
Take time to visit the towns and villages and enjoy the scenery, the castles and palaces, the baroque
abbeys and cloisters which usually throne impressively on rocky elevations over the landscape.
