In front of us, the powerful Steiner Tor blocks the free access to the city center - and has been with great success for centuries. As you can see, it's part of the old and effective fortifications. In former days, the road led across the moat, via drawbridge, past the heavy armed gatekeepers.
Today, the Steiner Tor is the landmark of Krems. Indeed, it is the only preserved gate and a good photo motive.
