What to do in Dürnstein?
The amazing landscape of the Wachau, which is also on the UNESCO List of World Heritage Sites, is the perfect setting to explore prehistoric rocks. Hikers will love the numerous trails of varying degrees of difficulty such as Welterbesteig Wachau (e.g. Dürnstein-Weißenkirchen or Krems-Dürnstein) or the hike to Dürnstein castle via Vogelbergsteig Wachau, boasting amazing views of Danube Valley. If you prefer it more relaxed take the slow train through the vineyards.
The only fully biological swimming pool in Lower Austria is the ideal alternative on hot summer days.
Explore the region along the Danube on a ship and learn more about the towns of Krems, Rossatz, Weißkirchen, Spitz, Emmersdorf and Melk. Ships are travelling from Vienna to Dürnstein and back from July to September. While travelling on the ship enjoy local specialties – Wachau apricot, excellent local wines, and lots more.
