What this illustrious English King enjoyed eight centuries ago - albeit, in his case, somewhat involuntarily - awaits you in an almost unchanged state: namely, one of the most beautiful, pristine river landscapes in Europe, tucked into the green hills of the Waldviertel ("forest district") and the Dunkelsteinerwald ("dark stone forest").

Dürnstein Abbey by Georg Dallamassl

Dürnstein Abbey

The story of the Church began in 1372 when Elizabeth von Kuenring founded a Chapel within
the walls of her Castle dedicating it to the Assumption of the Virgin Mary. In 1400 she made a
gift of half of her former family home, to the Augustinian Canons of Wittingau in Bohemia for it
to be used as a Monastery.
