Arrival by car
Coming from Vienna
Drive up the Danube on A22, Donauuferautobahn, in the direction of Stockerau; take the exit to S5, Stockerauer Schnellstraße in the direction of Tulln, and follow the road to Krems an der Donau. S5 becomes B3, Donau Bundesstraße. Follow this road straight on, passing two rotaries, until you reach Förthof, located on the left next to the Avanti gas station.
Coming from St. Pölten
Drive on S33, Kremser Schnellstraße; at the Traismauer junction, continue to follow S33 in the direction of Vienna, over the Danube bridge. On the other bank of the Danube, at the Jettsdorf junction, take the exit to S5, Stockerauer Schnellstraße. S5 merges into B3, Donau Bundesstraße. Follow this road straight on, passing two rotaries, until you reach Förthof, located on the left next to the Avanti gas station.
Coming from Linz
Take A1, Westautobahn, to St. Pölten; at St. Pölten junction, exit onto S33, Kremser Schnellstraße, in the direction of Krems. Then follow the route description "Coming from St. Pölten".
Alternatively - a bit more time-consuming but all the more picturesque - we recommend the route along the northern bank of the Danube on B3, Donau Bundesstraße, downstream. This leads you on a direct route to Förthof bei Stein an der Donau. Before you reach the rotary before the Danube bridge to Mautern, you will find us on the right-hand side next to the Avanti gas station.
Free parking spaces for customers and guests are available in front of the historic Förthof on the Förthofer Donaulände, and directly in front of the building with the address Förthofstraße 7.
Arrival by public transport
The train station Krems is very well connected in the direction of Vienna and St. Pölten. There are also regular connections to the Walviertel via Hadersdorf. We recommend taking the city bus line 1 from the train station to Förthof, or a taxi.
Krems city bus line 1 runs twice an hour on weekdays, Monday to Friday and Saturday mornings.
Förthof also has its own train station (Stein-Mautern stop) which is seasonally served by the Wachaubahn, a tourism railway operated by the Federal State of Lower Austria.
Between Krems and Melk, the busses of the Wachau lines operate on the north bank (line 715) and on the south bank (line 720). They are not only popular excursion busses, but also represent a year-round transport offer through the Wachau.
