Be treated to several choices of excursions. Take a walking tour of Dürnstein before visiting the UNESCO World Heritage-designated Melk Abbey. Or, hike the trail up to the ruins of Dürnstein Fortress, where Richard the Lionheart was once held captive, and where you'll find spectacular views of the valley, river, and village below. You can also choose to cycle through the Wachau Valley on a guided bike tour to Melk. For a more culinary-focused experience, sample wine and special apricot treats from a local boutique. Later in the day, head up to the Sun Deck for panoramic views as you unwind with a scenic cruise through the Strudengau and UNESCO World Heritage-designated Wachau valley. In the evening, head ashore in Grein for an exclusive castle visit complete with wine. (B,L,D),
