Our Day in Durnstein and Melk, Austria

Since the cruise began Monday night, we’ve traveled at night.  Today, we were lucky to make our way up the Danube River in Durnstein through the Wachau Valley, to Melk, Austria.

It was another foggy morning as we walked through the very small village of Durnstein, which is known for its wines and apricot brandy.

After sampling free shots and chocolates, we sailed along the Wuchau Valley and it was spectacular.  I’m amazed at how many large cruise ships there are on the Danube River.

We then arrived in Melk, Austria, to tour a monastery that is almost 1,000 years old and it was incredible.  It was the most beautiful church in the world.  Okay, I haven’t spent a lot of time in churches!  But, it was spectacular.
