Tour 4
Danube Valley Wachau
The Abbey of Melk and Boat Tour along the Danube

This excursion takes you to the Wachau, often described as Austria's most beautiful 35 km. Located along the banks of the Danube between Melk and Krems, the Wachau surely is one of the most romantic and enchanting riverscapes of Europe. Here the mighty stream is framed by soft hills and terraces of wine and fruit plantations.

First we take you to the Benedictine Abbey of Melk. Situated on a plateau overseeing the Danube, this baroque monument is a perfect example of harmony between architecture and landscape. The library, with more than 80 000 volumes and manuscripts, is particularly impressive.

We will stop for lunch in Emmersdorf, and afterwards continue to Dürnstein by boat. Dürnstein is one of the prettiest places in the Wachau and during the boat tour, history will be brought back to life. This is the town where King Richard the Lionheart was held captive, and was liberated by his loyal servant Blondel.
