What To Expect
Pass Krems, a wine town, on the way to your first stop in the medieval town of Dürnstein, where King Richard the Lionheart was imprisoned in the 12th century. Visit the abbey of St. Augustine to see its famous blue tower, as well as the rustic wine taverns, medieval courtyards, and the town hall. Opt for a hike up to the fortress to see where Richard the Lionheart was held prisoner, and stop to taste local apricot schnapps and marmalade.
Continue to Spitz, where you can opt to take a Danube river cruise, including lunch. Alternatively, stop at one of the Danube Valley's picturesque wineries for lunch.
After your meal, visit the Melk Abbey, which was founded 1000 years ago by the Benedictines. Your tickets are reserved in advance so you can skip the entry line, then take a private tour led by one of the monastery's own guides.
On the way back to Vienna, journey through the famous Vienna Woods.
