Postcard perfect Dürnstein | Austria

Dürnstein is a small Austrian town on the Danube river. On the top of the hill you see Dürnstein Castle, dating back to the year 1192. Interesting fact: King Richard I of England was imprisoned in this castle by Leopold V, Duke of Austria after their dispute during the Third Crusade.

The Wachau is a stretch of the Danube Valley between Melk and Krems, a landscape of high visual quality. The town of Dürnstein is located here and part of the site inscribed under the name Wachau Cultural Landscape.

This is a beautiful town and cathedral. The 3 hr cruise from Vienna to Melk is something to do at least once.
