Romantic Danube Valley „Wachau“

Excursion in Vienna

Tour Price : 330€ Duration : 8 hours Languages: German, English, French, Spanish, Italian

This private tour lasts for the whole day and you will have a good chance to discover the beauty and grandeur of Wachau, which was added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 2000. Wachau is a very popular tourist destination in Austria, which attracts thousands of travelers from all over the world. It is universally known for its remarkable breathtaking landscape, formed by the beautiful Danube River. The famous Wachau is located somewhere between the towns of Krems an der Donau and Melk and attracts lots of “epicureans and connoisseurs”. According to the legend it is the place where the legendary English King Richard the Lion-Heart was held hostage by Duke Leopold V.

The whole place is literally filled with history, and everyone who visits Wachau has a unique opportunity to immerse into the glorious past. You would be amazed at the mixture of elegant ancient monasteries and urban architecture of the two towns – Melk and Krems. Besides the monasteries you will also find there several ancient castles and ruins. According to the statistics there are more than 5000 historical monuments in the famous Austrian valley. Therefore you won’t have even a single free minute during our day tour! We will spend the whole day exploring the countless beauties of the Wachau Valley.

One of the most visited places of Wachau is without any doubt the marvelous Melk Abbey. It is situated above the town on a granite outcrop, so it is seen almost in any point of Melk. The abbey was founded more than millennia ago – in 1089 AD – and since that time it was constantly inhabited by monks. Schallaburg Castle is another attraction of the region, and it is definitely worth seeing. You will also have an opportunity to taste some remarkable Austrian wine and have a boatride on Danube, if you are interested in that.
