This tour has it all! Highlights - Visit the picture-perfect town of Durnstein, a UNESCO World Heritage Site - Wine tastings in traditional and local family-owned taverns - Bike along the most beautiful stretch of the Danube River - See the former prison of King Richard the Lionheart - Discover century-old, terraced vineyards The wonderful Wachau Valley on the banks of the Danube is a Unesco World Heritage Site, famed for its lush verdant landscapes and rustic towns but most of all for the quality of its wines, especially the young whites. Visits to the family-run wineries that dot the valley are almost a rite of passage for Austrians. Breathe in the fresh country air as you cycle along this secret Eden, taking in the sights and sounds of the pristine scenery. Stop at local wineries and sample a variety of wines as well as other local delicacies, like the valley’s famed apricot jams or chocolates, chutneys and mustard as well as schnapps and liqueurs. Enjoy free time to explore the picturesque medieval town of Durnstein, which is dominated by the ruins of a castle where English king Richard the Lionheart (of Robin Hood fame) was held prisoner. The views over the Danube and the valley are breathtaking. Maybe you can jump into the river for a swim or go for a riverside stroll. Then enjoy lunch at a family-owned tavern serving traditional Austrian dishes. This action-packed day trip has it all: fun, exercise, sightseeing, history, culture, food and, of course, wine.
