Durnstein & Wine

During our Melk - Krems river cruise we passed a very cute town called Durnstein. After doing some research, we found out it was the most visited town of the Wachau area so naturally we had to check it out to see what it was all about. Oh and it is also a well known wine growing area so I planned on having a glass or two.

The town is named after the castle that overlooks the town. The castle was almost completely destroyed in 1645 by the troops of the Swedish Empire.
