    Aggstein is an old Kuenringerburg from the 12th century The location of the castle on a strategic spur above the Danube, so was crucial for trade on the Danube. Today, the Castle via a good road is easy to reach. For people with mobility problems and children I wouldn't be this complex or only partially recommended. For children, an exhibition is to visit in the former Palace. There are many stairs and ladders and there are also the worth seeing places. All in all is over restored the Castle and one must be from the compartment, to recognize the old masonry as such.

    The ruins are situated very views of the Danube River, sunset, it a great evening might be nice. The evening announced on Facebook was unfortunately a flop. If it was not the first hungry, there was nothing more easy. The €22 were not worth to organize the desperate attempts of a single waitress, supply. Some guests loudly demanded back their money, what also did not contribute to the mood. The music was ok, however, the break of 1 hour was simply too long. Further way, CD's we could hear at home also.

    Lovely old castle near Danube river. Wonderful view over Wachau wine Valley. If you enjoy walking, leave your car on the parking near the river. It is about 40 minutes climbing through a nice forest path. The restaurant inside the castle is also a nice place for a refreshment of a meal. I can highly recommend this place!

    The Aggstein castle is a remaining ruins of the former castle. It was built in the twelfths century. It was long time owned by ruthless knights, blocking the river by chains and pressing money for passing. The cradle of todays toll systems. The case is rather elevated: 480 meters, round 1570 ft. above sea level. It is located at the Danube section Wachau on right river banks.

    Very beautiful castle which is worth a visit, despite the long winding way up here. The view is also great. You can see a lot o the Wachau valley from here.
