This hotel is one of the best I have stayed in, both in terms of location and also the quality of our stay. Located in the beautiful Wachau Valley and right on the banks of the Danube River, the little town of Durnstein is absolutely charming. We were here 9 years ago on a river cruise and have always wanted... More
