Dürnstein is an old city in the heart of the Wachau (Wachau Cultural Landscape http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/970). The Wachau is a stretch of the Danube Valley between Melk and Krems, a landscape of high visual quality. It preserves in an intact and visible form many traces - in terms of architecture, (monasteries, castles, ruins), urban design, (towns and villages), and agricultural use, principally for the cultivation of vines - of its evolution since prehistoric times.
