The Wachau Valley, the stretch of the Danube between Melk and Krems, is one of the most picturesque sections of the river, a highlight of many cruises in Europe. The southern half of the valley is lined with densely wooded slopes while, as the river continues downstream, more and more vineyards can be found along the banks. The region has produced wine since the 13th century and is famous for its complex whites, which are complimentary onboard throughout your Uniworld journey. Sailing past vineyards and the tiny baroque village of Dürnstein where Richard the Lion-Heart of England was famously imprisoned, you’ll discover why this valley is a UNESCO-designated World Heritage Site.
