  • 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.  more »
  • It was a lot of work hiking up to the castle but so worth it. We had a lot of fun exploring the castle and made some wonderful memories.  more »
  • This was well worth the walk. I'm not the fittest person in the world but we were able to get up in 25 minutes. The trail is well signed with interesting information boards on the way up to tell us...  more »

  • A very nice calm town. A stroll in the town and then a trek to the top of the castle ruins would be ideal. Would recommend half day visit to this place. A must if you are in Vienna
  • Terrific little town. Beautiful baby blue on gold church. Hike up to the abandoned castle we'll worth it, short fifteen minute hike.
  • Absolutely one of the cutest little towns on the outskirts of Vienna. There are plenty of small shops with artifacts and homemade Delicacies. The town also has a beautiful bike trail that is worth exploring and goes along the river. And there is also a river cruise close by that I highly recommend for a peaceful sit-in trip down the river.
  • Visited this beautiful town when on a river cruise, just a short walk from the river so no need to book a tour. Wine tasting in most of the wine shops and a lotsof souvenir shops if your into that. Would be a fabulous place to live if you could afford it. Would most definitely visit again if touring the area again.
  • Free entry all day! Fun and easy trek with some perilous heights and wonderful views of the Danube. Richard the Lionheart was supposedly held captive here at one point. Lots of fun imagining life as a medieval Knight!
