We hiked up to Schloß Kürnriger and had our eyes knocked out by the view. It's gorgeous and well worth the vista,, but the ruins themselves are not maintained so they are what's left after 1000 years. The history behind the capture of Richard the Lion Hearted is well documented on placards as you climb the path, and they make for an excuse to stop and rest while you read the info provided. There is no entry fee. We spent under an hour hiking, reading the placards and picture taking. If you are in Durnstein and in reasonably good health, it is well worth the effort.
