By cycling back we were often amongst the vineyards. It was harvest time and so the grapes are being picked and processed. It was lovely to be cycling past vineyards and through towns busy with the activity of the season.
Durnstein, between Melk and Krems on the Danube.
The river cruise was €24 per person. There was a return option of €29, but we need the exercise, cycling gives a different view, and we like to save money wherever we can (while still living this lifestyle!)
In Krems we bought food stuffs at the supermarket and made ourselves a picnic on the river.
We pamped (free) the night prior in Ypps and that night in Melk.
