The view from the village of Rossatz to Dürnstein was gorgeous. Before I continued
my hike, I watched the festival for St. Florian, the patron saint of the firemen. The
local wind ensemble marched together with women wearing Dirndl and Goldhaube
(national costume with golden hat) through the village and then to the church.
For hours I walked through vineyards and forests and soon the monastery Göttweig
appeared in the distance. From a view-tower (Ferdinandswarte), I looked down to
Krems and Mautern.
Path up to Göttweig
When the sun was setting, I arrived at Göttweig monastery, where I stayed overnight.
