Relax in a charming hotel in the historic town of Durstein with views overlooking the Danube. As stated by others, the rooms are not luxurious but very comfortable. The corridors are lined with antique art, cabinets and chairs. The garden is lovely and the adjacent decent-sized pool is surrounded by the historic building and abbey walls. Bicycling along the level bike paths between Durnstein and Spitz (10 km) or to Melk (30 km) takes you along vineyards and fruit orchards between small villages. One caveat, if you travel to Melk and arrive after 4:20 P.M., the only transportation with your bike is a single 7:30 P.M. bus from the train station back to Durnstein.
If you travel from Durnstein to Spitz or Melk on the steamer then you can bicycle back. Bicycles are available at the hotel. The breakfast were excellent in a charming setting.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Medieval convent walls of a former convent surround the property, art works of the region, fill it, and the incomparable site does the rest to lend this spot its inimitable character. Serenity and repose are everywhere you look, be it at the open fireplace, in the romantic terraced restaurant overlooking the Danube or the spacious, dreamlike convent gardens, which now play host to an idyllic heated swimming pool. ... more less
