Steiner Tor is a preserved gate, originally built in the late 15th century but refashioned in the Baroque style in the city of Krems an der Donau, in the Wachau valley of Austria. It is considered the symbol of the city. Until the last third of the 19th century, the city of Krems was surrounded by a wall. This was systematically razed, and three gates were also removed. From 2005, celebrating the 700-year anniversary of the city rights, the Steiner Tor was restored as much to its original as possible.

The Powder Tower in Krems an der Donau is a massive round tower that forms the northeast corner of the former city fortifications and thus towers over the city situation when approaching the city from the east. Due to its characteristic location, it could be described as the second landmark of Krems. As part of the city wall, it dates back to the end of the 15th century (1477), but it was originally flat-roofed and served as a battery tower.
