  • Some of the three most interesting castle ruins in the Wachau Valley do not give way to the view of the castle in Durnstein and are much easier to access. Here you can approach the village centre, but then the walk turns into a trip. The best way to get here is by visiting the Schiffahrtsmuseum, which is a 10-minute walk not too steep. The ruins are preserved in a quite large part, so you can go wrong in their many corners. The Danube Panorama is the biggest attraction. From here you can see the whole bend of the river and several towns on both sides. And for this, the gentle slopes covered by the omnipresent vine. The whole castle is half an hour.

  • Well worth the 10-15 min walk (depends where you park). Interesting and lovely views. Free.
  • Amazing ruine of castle in amazing nature landscape. All valley is so pretty with vineyards on the hillsides. Small villages. And in middle of that is Donau river. For me the first of part that river, where I can to say. Donau can to be beautiful river. Not only dark or dirty canal which we know from Vienna or another places. I will lucky to visit again that area for a few days.
