There are many many old town areas in Austria. This is one of the best. There are mostly local shoppers and a few tourists. Relaxing!

We always love to see that historical city gates such as this are not only kept but maintained and this one is no exception. Very well maintained and a perfect entrance to the charming town of Krems.

Steiner Tor marks the entrance to Krem's Alstadt. Just walk through and into the pedestrian zone and checkout the many shops and restaurants along the way. I spent a couple of hours tooling about before heading a few miles up River to Durnstein.
