Danube Valley

Recommended
Although its waters are not always as blue and clear as in Strauss' Blue Danube, especially when in flood, the charm of its idyllic banks, notably between Greins and Krems, bewitches virtually every visitor. Ancient castles where it seems medieval nobles might still preside, Renaissance-style houses with fine arcaded courtyards, fortified churches and magnificent abbeys line the banks of this river, so often sung about.
