Your stay

In a magnificent position in the Wachau, the gorge which is the most picturesque section of the Danube, where Nature and Art combine in perfect harmony, stands Dürnstein Castle, amidst the World Heritage Site. Built in Renaissance style, it was for centuries the property of the Princes Starhemberg. In recent centuries the present owners have converted it into a hotel of great style catering for even the most fastidious guest. This 17th century castle has a splendid décor as well as a sauna, hammam and pools.
The Wachau enjoys a mild, dry climate, which means not only that Austria’s most renowned white wines grow here, but also that the restaurant terrace is a perfect place for just sitting and enjoying – indeed, it has deservedly acquired the reputation of being the most beautiful terrace on the whole length of the Danube. The fine cuisine of head chef Hans Zusser and the splendidly stocked cellar have made in this castle hotel a meeting-place for gourmets.Only two minutes from the hotel, a wine bar and grill has been offering an excellent alternative to the château's gourmet restaurant, and promises an extremely enjoyable evening out. The wine bar area features a range of wines that guests are invited to choose for themselves.
