The Danube Valley
This is a full-day excursion which will show you the beautiful landscapes of the Danube Valley – through a romantic scenery full of history and legends. Our excursion starts passing by the heart of the Wachau – the old wine-growing region of Krems.
From there the Danube winds its way past charming old villages and steep vineyards. Perhaps the most famous castle in the Danube Valley is Dürnstein – now a ruin – where King Richard Lionheart was imprisoned before being found by his faithful minstrel Blondel. During a romantic boat trip on the Danube river the history comes alive.
The highlight of this excursion will be an interior visit of the Benedictine Abbey of Melk, a pearl of the Austrian Baroque and afterwards we will have lunch at the restaurant at the Melk Abbey!
