Wachau Valley, Lower Austria

(4.7/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Picture-perfect and enchanting at every turn, Wachau Valley represents a World Heritage Site acclaimed for its agriculture and architecture. The valley is home to a number of elegant monasteries, castles, and ruins, including Dürnstein castle--the 12th-century fortress where King Richard the Lionheart of England was held captive by Duke Leopold V. The valley attracts agriculture buffs and epicureans with its many scenic vineyards and high-quality wines. Take a walk through the valley's lush rolling hills to see the small, quaint villages and churches. Consider renting a bike to take in the serene landscape, and relax at the end of your visit with a glass of local wine.
