Danube River, called in German as Donau Fluss is the second longest river in Europe after Volga. I already experienced a lot of short cruises on this river. One of the it was the cruise we had in Austria which started in Spitz. One of the towns we passed-by was Dürnstein. This beautiful town is located in the Krems-Land district in the state of Lower Austria. It is considered to be one of the most visited town in the region of Wachau.
The town has a medieval castle on the top of a hill. Dürnstein is a historical town which was first mentioned in 1192.
I took some snapshots during our cruise in this area last summer 2011. It was a wonderful one seeing the nature that surrounds Danube.
