Wachau and Danube Valleys Tour from Vienna
- Take a romantic boat cruise on the Blue Danube
- Visit the enchanting Abbey of Melk
- Experience the scenic beauty of the Wachau and Danube Valleys
You will explore the River Danube as it flows around picturesque villages and steep vineyards. The many ancient castles testify to the former importance of the river as a trade and traffic route. One of these is the ruins of Dürnstein Castle, where, according to legend, Richard the Lionheart was kept imprisoned, and was eventually freed by his faithful minstrel Blondel.
You will take a romantic boat trip along the legendary Danube and go to the heart of the Wachau wine-growing region at the old city of Krems. A highlight of the tour will be a visit to the Benedictine Abbey of Melk, one of Austria's most famous Baroque buildings, and winner of the award for "Best Historic Destination of the World" in 2008.
There will be the possibility to stop at the Abbey Restaurant for lunch, and during the winter season, when the boat cruise is unavailable, this will be replaced with lunch in Melk.
