The name says it all. The “Art Mile of Krems” extends from the historic town centre to the medieval village centre of Stein, and from museums and concert venues to gourmet restaurants, ensuring an abundance of stimulating cultural experiences.
The way to get the most out of the Kunstmeile is to be open to all spontaneous invitations and impulses, for there is much to discover in the varied “cultural landscape” between Artothek and WEINSTADTmuseum
, with its galleries, forums, and exhibition spaces. An absolute must is a visit to the Kunsthalle Krems
and the neighbouring Caricature Museum
. The Kunsthalle has taken as its focal point the presentation of both established and new artists of the modern age (from the end of the 19th century to the present).
The Caricature Museum sees itself as a mass-appeal platform for satirical art from Austria and abroad. Manfred Deix, one of Austria’s most important satirical artists, is represented in the museum with a permanent exhibit. All in all, the Kunstmeile Krems comprises some twenty cultural institutions and eight restaurants and wine bars.www.kunstmeile-krems.at
