Hotel Richard Lowenherz and the charming little town of Durnstein are ideal to make as your home base in the Wachau Valley. If possible plan to be there 3 days for the June solstice celebration.

Just came back from 2 days at this amazing hotel. It is magical. The views and scene are unreal. The restaurant is charming. And the village takes you back to the middle ages just like the hotel does. The rooms are big and comfortable.

We stayed one night in the older historical hotel in September. The hotel is a converted convent where Richard the Lionhearted was once held prisoner. It is located in the very small town of Durnstein, a wonderful location from which to explore the Wachau Valley, right on the Danube providing spectacular views of the river and the valley. The rooms,... More

We stayed two nights while on a group bike trip. The hotel was a convent, and the building has a lot of interest, both structurally and visually. Located right by the village wall, the views from our room were wonderful: a beautiful terrace garden, the city wall, miles of vineyards, and the Danube... Just doesn't get any better! The rooms...

We LOVE this hotel! It is in the charming village of Durnstein, and I believe it is a converted monastery. The grounds are breathtakingly beautiful, as is the interior. We had a lavish breakfast every morning, wonderful dinners, and a charming room with a beautiful view of the Danube. I can't say enough about this beautiful hotel!!

We reserved our stay with high hopes & overall we were disappointed. The hotel is beautiful with wonderful gardens & views of the Danube. But we ended up paying a lot of money for not very much in the way of amenities. The room itself was nothing special and the bathroom was small and also not exceptional, therefore overpriced. The...

We loved the place. Stayed in the hotel in July 2014. We had breakfast included every morning and loved eating at the restaurant in the evening while viewing the Danube. We splurged and stayed in the Margareta Suite, which had a great balcony overlooking the Danube River and vineyards across the river. There is no A/C, but we had two... More

Relax in a charming hotel in the historic town of Durstein with views overlooking the Danube. As stated by others, the rooms are not luxurious but very comfortable. The corridors are lined with antique art, cabinets and chairs. The garden is lovely and the adjacent decent-sized pool is surrounded by the historic building and abbey walls. Bicycling along the level... More
