The rolling hills and vineyards of the Wachau take you through the romantic wine villages of Spitz, Weissenkirchen and the gorgeous little village of Dürnstein, where you can still see the jail of King Richard the Lionheart where he was prisoned during one of his crusades. You move on to the city of Krems (or nearby towns), where you spend the night.
