Extremely quaint and we all wished we had a few more hours. ...

    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.

    Durnstein is a through spot for cycling tours in Autria.
