education & modernity

Krems is a university and school city. In addition to 5 colleges and universities, with approximately 13,000 students, a big variety of public and private schools are located in Krems. Although Krems is strongly influenced by the past, the city opens for the new. From the mid of the 1990s a lot of modern architectural projects were realized in the city of Krems, where on the one hand old building got new uses and new projects were also realized. One such project is for example the Danube University in Krems-Stein, the former tobacco factory in Krems was filled with life and the old building became alive again, the Gozzoburg in the old town of Krems and the Krems Art Gallery.
