Durnstein has one street. It goes from the Danube River at one end to the monastery at the other. There are about 30 shops. Their main claim to fame these days is the apricot brandy and schnapps that they make. They also produce a lot of (mainly) Riesling wine.

Today we sailed through the Wachau valley which was stunning., with beautiful villages around every bend. Vineyards, fruit and vegetable are grown in abundance, and everything was lush and green. We saw several castle and ruins along the way, and they all looked very picturesque. We stopped in the gorgeous little village of Durnstein. Extremely quaint and we all wished we had a few more hours. ...
