'Dürnstein with its abbey church.'
The Wachau is seen by many as the most beautiful part of the Danube. Indeed, it's hard to find a more romantic landscape between source and Black Sea. It's on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. In the eastern part, from Spitz to Krems, wine rules. Dürnstein is called the Perl of the Wachau. Its combination of Donaubarok (abbey and church), Middle Ages (houses and stronghold) and vineyards indeed are worth a visit. Photo Paul Smit.
