This lovely small town has been seen by millions as it is used it just about every travel brochure and river cruise advertisement for the Danube. Look for the blue and white steepled Stift Durnstein church at the slight bend in the river. Town has very nice shops, places to procure wine or grab a bite to eat. While not... More

This was not as well organized and busy as many of the other stops on our river cruise. It does not offer many of the recognizable tourist venues that many of the other river towns offer. Therefore, it is much more low key and worth the one or two hours necessary to walk around the town. The local wines are... More

A must visit if you make it to Dürnstein after visiting the old castle ruins. Their blood sausage is phenomenal. Great service. Felt like you were part of the family.

We cruised down the Wachau Valley and tasted some of the apricot product the valley is famous for along the way. We had a 2 hour stop in the lovely village of Durnstein in the late afternoon. An absolute joy to walk through, a very peaceful & beautiful village. Well worth a visit

One of the stops during our Tauck River Cruise along the Danube. They make a delicious wine, liquor and other things from apricot. The church was beautiful highly recommend you go inside.

The view from the river of this lovely wine village must be familiar to countless people since it is widely used in travel brochures and river-cruise advertisements. I had sailed past previously however this was my first visit to Durnstein in the Wachau Valley. The attractive blue and white church tower really stands out from a distance. The little main... More

In our last trip to this wonderful wine village, we tasted several wines in a day. This place was one of the three places we dropped in. Outdoor drinking corner was already full, so we went down inside. We ordered just a glass of wine to relax ourselves after walking in the small but wonderful area. Stift Duernstein was also... More

On a Danube River cruise this is one of our stops. It is a very quaint village with vineyards terraced up the hills. Lots of local stores etc. there was even a maypole in the center of the city. We did not have a lot of time but did get to tour the beautiful blue church. Saw the cutest little... More

When we passed this place, we liked its outdoor sitting. Very pleasant and non-smoking. So we decided to have lunch there. The service was okay. The outdoor sitting is very good for people watching because it is at the corner of the main street. However, the food is terrible. I would suggest to have drink there only and watch people... More
