We loved the Danube cruise to the Monestary at Melk and the Wachau area. We had a beautiful day-the only non rainy day of our time in Vienna. Cruise had great food and drinks, awesome views and a chance to talk to other travelers from different places. Worth the $.

A wonderful trip from Melk to Krems. Do not waste it looking to try the wines in the Dömane Wachau wine shop. The treatment of employees is rude, unacceptable.

We organised this wonderful trip via the tourist information centre in Wien which is a really great place for day trips. We also organised going to Hungry but that is another story!! The Wachau is the stretch of narrow valley between Melk and Krems through which the Danube flows. We went to the Opera House and caught the bus to... More

We booked a day trip from Vienna by bus which included a lot for one day--including Melk Abbey, the town of Krems, various churches and small towns along the way. For us, this was the best way to go, as we saw a lot of the countryside around Vienna and were amazed at all that we accomplished that we never... More

We thought it was just going to be a boat ride, similar to the many we have been on in Europe. But we were simply amazed at the beauty of the terraced hillsides (vineyards) and towns/castles along the banks of the Danube. We took a bus/boat tour from Vienna, a 1/2 day excursion, about 45 minutes from Vienna. We stopped... More

Absolutely loved the Wachau region. We decided to take the train from Vienna to Melk, bike to Krems, and take train back. From everything I had read the bike ride wasn't supposed to last more than 2-3 hours. Wrong! It took us 3 hrs or so (with a couple stops along the way) just to get to Spitz. By that... More

Apricot candles, candies, liquor, schnapps, brandy, jam, wine, juices, anything apricot is here. It is worth an hour of shopping and an hour for lunch in this basically one street town. Loved the steep stone paved street coming down from the Abby. The Abby plus the town is a nice 3-4 hour visit.
