Sunday Herald Sun - Escape - - WISHLIST CRUISING -

Danube has been a sta­ple on river cruises for decades, but the small yet per­fectly formed town of Durnstein, Aus­tria, hasn’t made it onto the itin­er­ar­ies of most Danube River cruises un­til very re­cently.

Lo­cated about an hour out­side Vi­enna in the renowned wine­pro­duc­ing re­gion of Wachau Val­ley, its prime lo­ca­tion along the Danube makes it an ideal river cruise port.

Sur­rounded by vine­yard-cov­ered hills, shore ex­cur­sions of­fer win­ery vis­its to sam­ple award-win­ning ries­lings, as well as post­card-per­fect vil­lages, and his­toric sights – such as the cas­tle where King Richard I was once im­pris­oned.
