Romantic Danube Valley Day Trip From Vienna
Super recommended! The time to visit the monastery is very short, but the last library is very, very amazing. Unfortunately, I can’t take pictures in English. It’s a bit hard to listen to. No need to bring lunch. We went there in winter. The food on the boat is not expensive. The meals are unexpectedly delicious! The scenery is so beautiful~~
