Culturally connected cities

Decades ago, Krems on the Danube was an international role model in the preservation of monuments - this was also confirmed in partnerships at official levels. In addition to this, of course, there is the viticulture, which connects Krems on the Danube with Beaune and - at least in name - with Grapevine. Incidentally, Kremsier also has an extensive wine cellar next to the gardens and the castle, which were entered in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1998. This was two years before Krems received recognition as part of the Wachau region. The Denube is not the only thing that connects Krems with Passau because wine trade is another thing they both have in common. Together with Ribe, Krems has, among other things, the fact that both cities are among the oldest in their countries. Mammoth traces were both found in Krems and Böblingen. Incidentally, both cities, similar to the other culturally connected cities, perform a variety of tasks as central locations in their regions
