Less than 2hrs from Bratislava lie a World Heritage site – Wachau valley, the spectacular landscape along the Danube River, known for its wine and many renaissance little towns, historical castles, and churches. Our first stop is in the little town of Durnstein. Short walk around and climb up to the castle ruin. The views on the meandering Danube river are just stunning. Lunch break and chance to try tasty Austrian meals, desserts, and wines.
