Wachau – the romantic Danube Valley (8 h)

A full-day excursion, which will show you the beauty of the Wachau, classed as cultural World Heritage in 2000.
Through this romantic scenery full of history and legends the Danube winds his way past charming old villages and steep vineyards. The old castles tell us about the former importance of this area. One of them –Dürnstein– is especially famous, because King Richard Lionheart was imprisoned there, while waiting for his ransom to arrive from England. The heart of the Wachau is the old vine-merchants town Krems. To complete this day of highlights you will visit the magnificent Benedictine Abbey of Melk, a pearl of the Austrian Baroque and the “Cradle of Austria”.

Vine tasting and /or boatride on Danube river on request!
