Length: 1.2 mi • Est. 52 m
Great excursion if you are on a river cruise with a stopover in Dürnstein. This hike overcomes a few meters in altitude over a short distance, but offers great views accordingly. The cultural-historical highlight is the castle ruins, in which King Richard the Lionheart was imprisoned after his return from the crusades. Here you can explore the legends and stories about Lionheart and Robin Hood. Signs along the route contain some exciting information.Show more
