Krems in the Wachau Valley is an easy day trip destination from Vienna. We set out for the Franz Josefs Bahnhof and caught a train for the 1 hour ride to Krems.
Back outside, we wound our way down the hill once more. We stopped at Weingut Stadt Krems for a free wine tasting.
Wachau Valley is well known for whites such as Reisling and Grüner Veltliner. After our tasting and a lovely chat with the proprietor of the tasting room, we bought a couple bottles of Grüner Veltliner and headed back into town.
Passing through Steiner Tor, we found ourselves on the main shopping street.
We ate in reverse stopping at a bakery for dessert and coffee before eating lunch.
The pastel interior at Biedermeier-Cafe was quite soothing.
We opted for a café mélange along with a poppy filled crescent...
The interior felt quite homey and warm.
We could even watch the staff bustling about preparing our meals.
