Dürnstein Abbey in the Wachau looks best from the Danube. You can see the blue tower of the collegiate church below the castle from afar, if you approach the place by ship. The place does not offer many sights, but those that are are worth a visit. They bear witness to the great past of the place.
From the Hotel Pfeffel in Dürnstein Wachau you have a view of the Danube and the hills that rise behind it. In addition to gourmet rooms, the hotel offers a spa with wellness and a pool on the roof with a view of the town and the Danube.
Experiencing the Wachau in autumn is an experience. On the south-facing slopes in the western part of the Wachau, the sun shines on stone terraces on which wine varieties such as Riesling, Grüner Veltliner and Neuburger Smaragd thrive. The vineyards change color. Winegrowers decorate their wine shops for autumn.
