[AUSTRIA.NIEDER 03607] 'Vineyards around Spitz.' The Wachau is seen by many as the most beautiful part of the Danube. Indeed, it's hard to find a more romantic landscape between source and Black Sea. It's on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. In the eastern part, from Spitz to Krems, wine rules. If you have the chance, visit the region in autumn. Everything is gold and you can see the grape pickers at work. Photo Paul Smit.
