Road Studies Site-Visit
The bicycle is the ideal means of transport to investigate on site the integration of the road into the landscape. Cycling from Emmersdorf to Krems we were able to document the interplay of the old and the new Wachau road with the railway line and the cycle path. In St. Michael, the traffic routes merge into a scenic compression between rocks and the Danube, creating a particularly fascinating spot. The exhibition Die Straße am Strom (The Road on the River) at Teisenhofer Hof in Weißenkirchen comprehensively shows the context and the creation of the Wachau Road in the 1950s and provides a valuable background to which our project can connect.
