In the northwestern part of Lower Austria the Waldviertel is located. The main attractions of the Waldviertel are, besides the Kamp valley and the Wachau, also the city of Krems. Furthermore, there are also numerous pilgrimage sites and castles to visit. The Kamp reservoirs are a particularly popular destination. Renowned museums can be found in the Waldviertel in Horn, Zwettl, Eggenburg and Raabs an der Thaya. A trip with the Waldviertel narrow gauge railway should not be forgotten in the holiday planning. When winter sets in the Waldviertel, the cross-country season starts. But also on dog sleds, snowshoes or on the numerous hiking trails the beautiful Waldviertel winter wonderland can be explored. Especially at Christmas time you will find the traditional Christmas markets here, where they offer the visitors the special Waldtviertler cookies.
