The World Heritage Trail Wachau: Wine and Culture along the Danube
Along the beautiful blue river Danube – goes The Blue Danube waltz composed by Johann Strauss (son) long ago. Over eight days you walk along the World Heritage Trail across the picturesque Wachau region. Countless vineyards and apricot trees line your hiking route and every few metres you get to marvel at a cultural landmark. Discover the prison cell of Richard the Lionhearted at Dürnstein castle or stroll within the thick walls of Göttweig monastery. A glass of sprite Grüner Veltliner on the side in the Sandgrube 13 and a snack platter in a wine tavern (‘Heuriger’) in the Kellergassen-alleyways of Krems. As a crowning finale you get to enjoy a boat ride on the river Danube, past Spitz, Krems and Weißenkirchen. Tip: Visit the castle ruin Aggsbach. The lookout towers and the inside of the castle compensate for the ascent!
