  • It’s only about a 500 foot elevation so if you are a little in shape you can do it. Busy with lots of people. Great views from the top. Highly recommend.

  • It offers the best view of the Danube Valley on your way up and from the top of the Burgruine. Not to be missed if you come to Durnstein.

  • This is a quite spectacular ruin and view. It is only a short hike to get up there from the village. The view of the river bend is nicer than the ruin, although it is amazing how the castle seems to have almost grown out of the rock.
  • Not a short climb, a bit difficult for those who are not in shape but possible. Preferably hiking shoes, sneakers will also do 😉. The view is worth the effort don't miss it.
