Tour 71 - From Prague to Vienna with 2 hours sightseeing stops in Durnstein and Melk (total 4 hours sightseeing included)

This sightseeing transfer is perfect for people who want to see more of Austria on their way from Prague to Vienna. Stopping in Durnstein and in Melk will also allow you to split your 4-hour trip into three shorter ones.

Located one hour away from Vienna, Durnstein sits along the Danube and is a part of the protected Wachau vallet. Its proximity to Vienna makes it the perfect choice for tourists looking for day trips close to the Austrian capital. Besides being filled with colorful houses and beautiful taverns, Durnstein has plenty to do and to see. Since it is a winemaking region, Durnstein is also the perfect little town to sit down and relax with a glass of wine.

The 2-hour stop offers the perfect amount of time to try one of Durnstein's many wines or to visit a few points of interest located around town, such as the Sift Durnstein, the monastery with the iconic blue tower, or the ruins of the Kuernriger Castle.

Melk is another quaint little town by the Danube and located in the Wachau Valley. This town is famous for its Benedictine Abbey, which dates back to the 18th century in its current version (actually, the Abbey's history can be traced back all the way to the 11th century). Melk's Old Town offers tourists a beautiful stroll along its narrow streets as well as several restaurants, cafes and gift shops. Your 3-hour stop will allow you to see most of the city itself and the Melk Abbey. Should the alotted time not be enough, we can extend the stop in Melk for a little extra.

During both stops passengers are free to explore Durnstein and Melk on their own while their bags are safely kept in the car. If you desire an extension of the allotted time in any of the Wachau Valley's towns, we can accommodate you for an additional fee. Just let your driver know and you will be able to stay for a few hours more in Durnstein or Melk.
