This deluxe apartment “Art Collection” with a king-size bed and air conditioning is located in the old town of Stein an der Donau, very close to the Danube Private University (DPU). Stein an der Donau is a very beautiful, originally very wealthy district of Krems an der Donau and, as the name suggests, is located directly on the Danube. There are great restaurants and wine taverns in the vicinity, such as the popular Italian Firenze or the Wellenspiel, which is known for its extensive deluxe breakfast.
“Art Collection” stands for a unique version of Smile Apartments. In every “Art Collection” apartment there is art by well-known, mainly Austrian artists. These include works of art by Gottfried Helnwein, Christian Eisenberger, Hermann Nitsch, Franz West and many more.

the car park
There is a free short-term parking zone in the old town of Stein. The maximum parking time is 3 hours. This must be proven with a parking meter. A parking meter, as a gift from us, is already waiting for you in the apartment.
From 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. you can park for free and without a parking meter. If you set it to 08:00 the day before, then you can comfortably stay there until 11:00.
If you don’t want to set a parking meter, there are also paid parking spaces and parking garages in the area to park your car and, for example, switch to a bicycle. We would be happy to inform you about this in a telephone conversation.
about KREMS / STEIN
As the gateway to the Wachau World Heritage Site, the more than 1000-year-old town of Krems with its historic cityscape has managed to dynamically shape the future and carefully preserve the old. Krems is closely linked to viticulture, which is reflected in the landscape, festivals and customs. You will find cozy wine taverns as well as traditional and upscale gastronomy between cobblestone streets. A variety of sights await you: the historic old town with numerous shops, the art mile, the Krems Museum in the Dominican Church, the Gozzoburg and the Wein.sinn Sandgrube 13 wine adventure world Wachau Marathon and much more take place in Krems.
While the old town of Krems retreats elegantly onto the mountain slopes, Stein lies directly on the river. The prosperity of the former port city of Stein is still astonishing today: richly decorated portals, bay windows and architectural treasures such as the Göttweigerhof, the Minorite Church and the parish church. Those who come from the Danube walk across the town hall square past the Johannes Nepomuk monument and the baroque town hall along Steiner Landstrasse – past the Krems art gallery, the caricature museum and the Und monastery – to the Steiner Tor. This is the only one of the four Krems city gates that has survived and is decorated with inscriptions and coats of arms. This is where the old town of Krems begins with the Upper and Lower Landstrasse, which has been the main axis of the city since the Middle Ages. A short tour leads to the Gozzoburg, the churches and the town hall from the 16th century, to the Göglhaus at the daily market, to the Simandl fountain, where a wine festival takes place every year in June, and to the Dominican church.
