UNESCO - World heritage since 2000. And justifiably so.
The valley of the River Danube is where culture merges with nature.
The distance between the beginning of the valley (Melk) and its end (Krems) is not that long, just 36 km. But the list of cultural monuments and interesting points is nearly endless. Three monasteries in baroque style, a huge number of distinguished winegrowing estates, hiking and biking trails offering amazing views, vineyards high above the Danube with stone walls. You might even discover a green lizard living there.
Night owl tours! When the city gets quiet, the facades, towers and dreamy staircases really come into their own! Perhaps a glass of apricot frizzante ....
In the footsteps of King Richard the Lionheart - city tour in Dürnstein, on request with interior tour of Dürnstein monastery (courtyard, church, cloisters, terrace)
From the Danube to the Red Gate - city walk from the Danube up to the centre of the village. Visit the parish church (which has a bend in the longitudinal axis!) and continue through the vineyards to the Red Gate!
Depending on your starting point I will propose to you a program for several hours or even several days suited to your interests and preferences, a culinary or wine tasting tour, a cultural or a sport day.
At the beginning and the end of the valley there are two magnificent Benedictine abbeys which welcome our guests. From far away you can already spot them.
Melk Abbey in the West, Göttweig Abbey in the East. Between them, there is the monastery of Dürnstein with its blue-white tower – quite well known as it is the landmark of the whole region. At every turn you will marvel at the magnificence of the baroque style!
