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.

When he arrived at the Austrian border, he was declared ...
I woke up at 6 and headed to the lounge to type. I like sitting up there in my robe with no one else up. I felt much better this morning. Had a cup of cocoa and cookie. (There is a tiered tray of cookies that are out in the lounge at all times. Baked fresh by the pastry chef daily. He makes the most perfect shortbread cookie.)Too early for Bob to get up! It was a lazy morning for us. The walking tour of Durnstein was not scheduled until ten. Bruce and Pawp planned to sleep ...
