This region is actually situated in the northernmost part of the country, but was named for its location downriver along the Danube. Take part in outdoor recreation or relax at a top-quality vineyard. Like much of Austria, this region hosts forests and mountains and is dotted with castles and lakes. Additional attractions include museums of traditional handicrafts, a historical abbey, and the nation's newest capital town.
