With its unique location directly on the banks of the Danube, the charming, traditional Hotel Richard Löwenherz in Dürnstein is the perfect choice for those who appreciate individual service in a beautiful historic ambience.
Hotel Richard Löwenherz is surrounded by medieval convent walls and decorated with works of art from the region.
The wonderful location, the romantic terrace restaurant overlooking the Danube, the extensive, dreamlike convent garden with its heated swimming pool, and the open fireplace give the hotel its unique character.
The award-winning gourmet restaurant serves a wide range of traditional and innovative culinary delicacies, as well as a selection of excellent wines from local, Austrian and international vineyards.
You can enjoy these special treats either in the elegant dining rooms or, weather permitting, on the terrace with its breathtaking view over the Danube. Sitting under shady chestnut trees, you will dine overlooking passing ships, the Baroque tower of the monastery and the ruins of the castle.
Today the ruins of Dürnstein Castle are the most popular sight in the Wachau. Hotel Richard Löwenherz is named after Richard the Lionheart, King of England, who was held captive there from 1192 to 1193.
