Lonely Planet review

This castle is the last word in luxury in town and also boasts a high-end restaurant. Most rooms are tastefully furnished in antiques, a massage can be arranged for your arrival, and there's a sauna and steam bath. The terrace restaurant enjoys staggering views over the river. Stay 10 nights and you get a night on the house (which might be useful if you happen to be broke by that stage). Closed over the winter.

Description provided by property

Hotel Schloss Dürnstein enjoys a unique location on a rock high above the Danube River, at the heart of the Wachau World Heritage Site, offering a restaurant with a terrace overlooking the Danube and providing panoramic views of the Wachau.

Built in 1630, it combines the atmosphere of a historic castle with modern comfort. Guests can enjoy indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a sauna, a steam bath, and a sun bed.

An extended breakfast buffet is provided every morning at Hotel Schloss Dürnstein. Lunch and dinner is also available at the restaurant. In July and August, guests can enjoy barbecue buffets on the panoramic terrace overlooking the river every Thursday.

This Renaissance castle was built in 1630 and was owned for centuries by the Starhemberg family. During the past years it was turned into a classy hotel by its new owners, the Thiery family.
