With its 2,800 inhabitants Grein is one of the smallest towns in Austria. All Gothic buildings were destroyed in a fire in the 15th century. The houses around the city square mostly date back to a time between 1550 and 1600. The city hall houses a magnificent rococo theater. It has largely remained unchanged. It now features summer plays and concerts. On the west side of the town, you will find the Castle Greinburg on the Hohenstein Peak. In 1597, a Renaissance courtyard was added to the building, which is now used for annual concerts and operas in the months of August and September. Grein’s history is closely tied to the Danube River. The city became very wealthy over the centuries, which is evident in its elaborate and beautiful architecture.
Spitz is located on the left bank of the Danube River, in the southern states of Austria. There are plenty of vineyards located along the town famous for its wine growth. There are plenty of activities available to the public in Spitz; this includes Segway tours, visiting the beautiful ruins of the Burgruin Aggstein castle as well as many opportunities for hiking.
