Krems City Park Krems city park is the largest coherent green space next to the city centre with a total area of 31.055 m². In March 1880 the local council decided to establish a new park by application of the 1. Union of urban beautification of Krems within the town-expansion in the open space in the Western outskirts of the city.

On former alluvium land of the Danube the city park was planted in a nearly twenty year term (1880- 1899) with domestic and also exotic conifers and deciduous trees. In the Northern part an elaborate, monumental fountain built of die- cast zinc was erected, but it was substituted in 1962 by a simple modern trick- fountain. In the southern part the architectonic valuable pavilion (designed in art nouveau- style by Josef Utz jun. and built in 1898) survived.
