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.

After that break for entertainment we find that our 2 suitcases have already been delivered to our room, allowing us to get un-packed and ready for dinner. Our evening meal is early tonight because we are going to a concert at 7pm.
