The Wachau is an utter feast for the senses all year round. Depending on where you go, you’ll smell ripe apricots or grapes. You can see the blue Danube, which draws its picturesque curves through the valley, and Dürnstein Castle towering high above. At this particular place you can enjoy the view of the coming grape harvest, take a little break, and think about the many ways that nature can be beautiful.
The Melk Abbey, generally known as one of the most famous buildings of the late baroque, can hardly be surpassed in its pomp and glamor and is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the Wachau.
