Designed as a tourist route in the 1950s, the Wachau Road passes through a variety of landscapes. On the route between Emmersdorf and Krems, one drives through sections with open views of the Danube, dense riparian forests or orchards and vineyards. Initially, the road was designed for a maximum speed of 60 km/h, thus the landscape could be appreciated from the car. Today, cars rush past us at speeds of 100 km/h as we walk from Aggsbach-Markt to Spitz and explore the Wachau region at the time of the apricot blossom. A car brakes next to us and stops at the verge. The driver quickly takes a few photos of the blossoming trees and continues the journey. We, in contrast, continue our tour at walking pace and listen to the chirping of the birds, the buzzing of the bees and have a chat with the winegrowers. From Spitz to Krems, we and many other visitors use the free bus service offered by the Wachau municipalities during the apricot blossom.
