The ruined castle above the town is a heck of a climb but the views are fabulous. The town itself is small but very attractive with lovely shops. The castle is where Richard I was held prisoner. Legend has it that the bard Blondel found him by singing outside the castle and you will see references to both of the men all over town. A lovely place to visit.
On boat from Melk to Krems, passes this place. Nice panorama, historical place (On the top of the hill a ruined Castle, king Richard was prisoner here for a while..) Boat trip on Danube is very enjoyable because of places like this!
