A great place to visit at the top of a large hill and well worth the climb up the stars to the tiny little chapel – there had been a wedding there the day before so the chapel was still littered with rose petals –...More
This was an unexpected wonder! Aggestein Castle, in the Wachau Valley is a fabulous medieval castle / fortress built in the rocks overlooking the Danube. Access is very easy with a car. The castle was restored in the 70's and for a small entrance fee...More

We enjoyed a trip to this commanding castle at the top of the hill. It was quite a climb (45 mins up a 20% gradient hill- follow the red signs halfway up to cut through the forest) but well worth it. The castle itself has...More
