After an overnight sail from Vienna, Kongo arrived in the beautiful and cultural heritage village of Durnstein located in the heart of the Wachau Valley. This region is known for its wine, forests, and famous blue-spired Augustine Abbey Church. In 1192-3 when coming back from a crusade, Richard the Lionheart was captured and held in Kuenringer Castle on the top of the hill over Durnstein.
