Private Group: €750
As one of the oldest cultural landscapes in Austria, the Danube valley was declared as a protected zone as early as in 1955. In December it was elevated to the status of a UNESCO-World Heritage site.
The beginning of our tour, after leaving Vienna early morning, will be a visit to Dürnstein. Situated in the heart of the magnificent Wachau Valley, on the banks of the mighty River Danube, the charming town of Dürnstein offers the unique combination of breathtaking scenery, traditional architecture, and places of historic interest. It was in the Kuenringer Castle, whose ruins still overlook Dürnstein, that the English King Richard Lionheart was held, prisoner.
After a guided walk uphill to see the ruins, you will maybe feel strong enough to taste your first vine.
Since many centuries vine has been cultivated in the Wachau. The special climate, the ground and the careful work of the wine-growers let the grapes become excellent wines.
Every year the vintners produce high-qualities, the sorts "Riesling" and "Grüner Veltliner" of the Terraces in the Wachau are famous in the world.
From there we will drive upstream towards Spitz. The scenery is breathtaking and we will have many stops for photo shooting on our way. Once in Spitz, you will change from car to boat. Hungry? Thirsty? Delicious food is offered and you can taste, during the boat ride through the world heritage, fine wines of the region served with a written explanation.
Finally, you will reach Melk, where I will pick you up from the dock. Besides the cozy little town, I will bring you up to world famous Melk Abbey. We will have a look at the gardens and as well a local guide from the abbey will show you the gorgeous baroque abbey. Melk Abbey is a masterpiece of baroque architecture. Believe me - you will be more than just impressed.
Afterward we will have a drink together and I will take you back to Vienna and drop you off at your hotel.
