    Unfortunately, the rain clouds were already coming - so there was no sightseeing

    Perched high above the Danube, with fabulous views of the Wachau World Heritage Site, is Aggstein - not without reason Austria's most famous castle ruin.

    Legendary castle experience in the Wachau. On the right bank of the Danube - on a steep cliff above the Danube - lies the castle ruins Aggstein, which has been lovingly revitalized in recent years and developed into a fabulous experience for its visitors.
    Already the Kuenringer ruled here and around the so-called "Rosengärtlein" entwines so many legends.
    Not only the fabulous view of the Danube valley or the Dunkelsteiner forest, but also the offer of the castle tavern, audio guides, the Nibelungen exhibition make the visit to a fabulous experience for the whole family.

    At about 180km, the wonderful Wachau World Heritage landscape can be explored on the Weitwanderweg Welterbesteig Wachau.
    The Wachau lies on the Danube between the two Lower Austrian cities of Melk and Krems.

    The castle ruins Aggstein is the ruin of a spur castle on the right bank of the Danube in the Wachau, whose origins date back to the 12th century. The castle ruins are located about 300 meters above the right bank of the Danube on a rocky spur running east-west. It is about 150 meters long and has a rock formation at both ends. The ruin is located in the municipality of Schönbühel-Aggsbach in the Lower Austrian district of Melk.
