A village set against the rocky mountainside. Walk alongside ivy-covered walls, step into the quiet inner courtyard. Rosebushes in the monastery garden. Inside, dark brown wooden furniture, covered in satin; on the walls, paintings and sketches, old portraits. Lean against the warm tile stove. Walk across the rugs; light brown stone floors. Coffee on the terrace, in the shade of chestnut trees. Gazing endlessly at the river flowing by below.

From 1884 until today: The third generation of the Thiery family now welcomes guests to Hotel Richard Löwenherz. This former convent lies in the small town of Dürnstein in the heart of the Wachau; a world-renowned winegrowing region and UNESCO World Heritage Site.
