Landesgalerie Lower Austria in Krems

Landesgalerie Lower Austria in Krems

The Landesgalerie Niederösterreich is a new, dynamic exhibition venue for Austrian art. It combines the holdings of Lower Austria's history-rich provincial collections with important private collections and responds to contemporary issues with themed and personal exhibitions. Exciting exhibitions are presented on five presentation levels and 3,000 m2 of exhibition space.

The city of Krems has a historically long and significant history to tell. With the first documented mention of the castle "Chremsia" in a document from 995, Krems is considered the oldest city in Lower Austria and has always been an important trading town on the Danube. Krems has a special connection to the Roman-German Emperor Frederick III. Among other things, he granted the city a new city coat of arms on April 1, 1463. It shows a golden double-headed eagle with an imperial crown hovering above its heads. The imperial double eagle still adorns the official insignia of the Danube city. Its signature AEIOU on the Steiner Tor and the Bürgerspitalkirche also testifies to this day to the city's prestige with Frederick III.
