The shipping pier in Sarmingstein concludes the band of WGD- shipping piers on the Danube in Upper Austria.
The village of St.Nikola is the last upper Austrian municipality along the Danube before entering lower Austria. The old boatman market is surrounded by the legendary Strudengau, it lives up to its name with the annual St. Nicholas visit on December 6 by ship and the St. Nicholas Church in the village.
Quiet forest paths and marked hiking trails – the “Stillensteinklamm” has the “Österreichisches Wandergütesiegel” (Austrian Hiking Quality Seal) – invite you to extended hikes, along viewing points with wonderful panoramic views of the Danube valley, fortresses and ruins.
