Wachau Panorama

The Wachau Valley

The Domäne Wachau is situated in the heart of the Wachau Valley, one of Europe’s oldest cultural landscapes. The Wachau is a gorge of only 33 km in length. Steep slopes terraced with dry stone walls, fortressed mountains, vineyards, orchards, rare flora and fauna as well as a rich cultural tradition make this a unique area in all of Europe. For this reason, the Wachau has also been named a World Cultural Heritage by UNESCO.

Wine has been cultivated in the Wachau for centuries. Primary rock soil, an exceptional climate and terraces overlooking the Danube River have great influence on the tremendous quality of the Wachau wines.

The preservation of this unique cultural landscape is an integral part of the Domäne Wachau mission as is making a visit to our headquarters in the historic baroque Cellar Castle (Kellerschlössel) a memorable highlight for guests of the Wachau.
