Village on the Danube River offers excellent History Lessons


Marilyn Jones 

On the shores of the Danube, a blue church spire signifies the approach of Durnstein, Austria, a town with a population of less than 1,000.


High above the village is another landmark, Kuenringernurg, the castle where Richard the Lionheart was held in the 12th century during the Third Crusade. I am a passenger on the AmaWaterways AmaSella and I am excited to visit this tiny village with a welcoming reputation.


Historically, Durnstein was first mentioned in conjunction with Kuenringernurg.
