Bus tour Vienna - Danube Valley

On our comfortable bus, you travel from Vienna to Krems, a pretty town on the banks of the Danube river. We continue on our tour and pass Dürnstein. Here you can see the ruins of Dürnstein castle on a nearby hill. This is where the English King Richard the Lionheart was held captive. A highlight is the guided tour through the Melk Abbey and a boat ride in summer or the lunch in the restaurant " Hotel zum schwarzen Bären" in winter.

After this enjoyable day trip, we take you back from the Danube Valley to the Vienna State Opera.

De abdij was geldig en de gids legde alles goed uit en nam de tijd om eventuele vragen van ons te beantwoorden.

Perdí un día dentro de un bus. Deberían ofrecer solo ir al monasterio. La primera parada en un pueblo donde no hay nada, la segunda para el almuerzo que fue pésimo y la última que si vale la pena es el monasterio. No lo recomiendo
