Picture-perfect and enchanting at every turn, Wachau Valley represents a World Heritage Site acclaimed for its agriculture and architecture.

  • Beautiful part of the Danube with a few historical wine-growing villages, are set Apricot and ancient monuments. Beautiful views of the Danube and the terraced vineyards. The road on both sides of the Danube River, also a bike path and pedestrian paths.

  • Go through the Wachau Valley downstream of Krems 1 hour by train from Vienna and from there by bus visiting Dürnstein. For the future through the Wachau Valley want to take vacation in the preliminary visit daytrip. Dürnstein-only visits, but many scattered villages. Western tourists like it are turning in cycling. The Danube flow is moderate tired after so much in the bike is going to be. I think because there is public transportation, is a narrow village street bike is handy. There is bicycle rental. About Dürnstein several separately posted so please see it.
