The Benedictine Monastery is an important point of reference for the Wachau valley and popular place for excursions of our guests.
We highly recommend to combine your cultural program with a short stroll or hike on the Göttweiger Berg.
All the information about the museum, the exhibitions, the many events, the restaurant and the mass can be found on the homepage of the Benedictine Monastery Göttweig.
Goettweig on Instagram is also worth a visit.
P.S: The Austrian Way of Saint James connects Mautern with Göttweig.
The Karikaturmuseum and the Kunsthalle, two museums dedicated to contemporary arts in Krems-Stein, offer a wide range of high-quality exhibitions year-round: The Karikaturmuseum Krems ist Austria's only museum for caricature, comic and cartoon. The Kunsthalle Krems features Austrian and international modern art.
We often take a walk from the Gästehaus though the historic center of Stein to the museums, stop for a bite to eat at Wellenspiel and return to Mautern via the footpath along the Danube.
The Renaissance castle Schallaburg would be worth an excursion on its own. This year’s exhibition „Crafty Hands“ is a discovery tour of handicrafts.
We have been there already with our boys and can recommend this very interesting and entertaining exhibition for kids as well as adults.

"Land der Berge, Land am Strome" - "Country of mountains, country along the river" these are the first words of the Austrian anthem. Shipping has always been important for our region, the valley of the danube between Melk and Krems. This museum is dedicated to the history of shipping. An insiders' tip. We would go by bike to the museum in Spitz, take a bite to eat at our friends' restaurant Gasthaus Prankl-Altes Schiffmeisterhaus, with the ferry we cross the Danube an slowly ride towards Mautern.
