Wachau cultural landscape – World heritage

November 29th, 2012 | admin

The Wachau in Austria is an important and valuable cultural landscape. The area along the river Danube is around 33 km long. Ruins, castles, small villages, woods and vineyards form the distinguishing features. The Wachau lies 80 kilometers to the west of Vienna and is on the World Heritage List since 2000. The Wachau is a valley of the Danube and runs from the picturesque town of Melk to the city of Krems. Dürnstein is one of the most appealing places of the area. See the number of visitors that set foot here, and you realise that it is never quiet. But the Wachau is more than just a hit and run area and however beautiful Dürnstein, there is a lot more to do in the valley, for example on the other side of the Danube. Officially designated by UNESCO as World Heritage Site, this site is to be safeguarded for the future as a testimony to its enduring past. The 26-part tv-series HERITAGE SITES of the WORLD is available in Dutch and English. Looking for broadcast footage? Please contact www.stockshot.nl ©
