Unique learning environment
Danube University Krems is located 80 km from Vienna – in one of the most beautiful cultural landscapes of Europe known as the Wachau. It has been declared a world heritage site by the UNESCO. The modern adaptation of an erstwhile tobacco factory in Stein, a characteristic industrial building dating back to the start of the 20th century, and the new premises at Campus Krems offer students and teachers an open and motivating environment that promotes innovation. The facilities include modern teaching and research rooms, a library, an auditorium, a cinema, apartments, and a variety of restaurants.

Studying in Krems

Krems is a traditional educational town - with more than 25 schools and high schools attended by nearly 20,000 students. Therefore, Krems’ environment is richly furnished with restaurants, hotels, guest-houses and students’ hostels, as well as leisure-time and cultural facilities. The idyllic environment of the Wachau, its exquisite wines and numerous sports facilities contribute in significant measure to the quality of life of students at the Danube University Krems.

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 Danube University of Krems Campus is an ideal starting point for jogging, cycling, playing squash and tennis, or simply for taking a walk through the vineyards. Oarsmen and swimmers can pursuit their hobbies in the nearby Danube River.
