Arriving by bus / train

From Vienna, Linz or  St. Pölten
Station Dürnstein Oberloiben

For a transfer from the train station to our hotel we would like to recommend the train station of Krems. Here taxis are available directly outside the arrivals hall. At our hotel nearest station Dürnstein-west, there are no taxis available and would have to come at the request of Krems, the starting distance is normally deducted from.

Arriving by plane

Vienna International Airport

Of all international airports there are regular flights to Vienna-Schwechat. The CAT train brings you from the airport into the town Vienna (Wien-Mitte station). From there you can reach Dürnstein with the underground and the Franz-Josephs-Bahn (Station Wien-Spittelau) about Krems

Arriving by boat

Coming from Vienna or Linz

All ships of the line on the Danube dock at Dürnstein! The transfer from / to the ship berth in Dürnstein west or east is for our hotel guests possible (up to 4 pers. Without oversized luggage).

However, should be noted here that the access is not permitted directly to the landing stage for vehicles - therefore finance collection is always carried out through the parking lot West (just before the tunnel) - about 2 minutes walk from the pier.

As a convenient alternative, we would also recommend the boat landing stone. Just off the pier taxis can be ordered, which can make your journey easier in our hotel much.
