In the tiny Austrian village of Dürnstein Kongo marveled at the profusion and beauty of window boxes. Almost every home wears these colorful floral decorations. They created a happy, welcoming atmosphere which made visitors feel at home. Very classy.
Dürnstein is located in the Wachau Valley district of lower Austria next to the River Danube. The region is known for its wines and famous castle ruins perched above the village and the scene where Richard the Lionheart was held captive here in 1192 by the Duke of Austria over differences after the Third Crusade.
Travel safe. Have fun.
