Nov 15, Fri: DURNSTEIN'S prominent landmark is the blue and white steeple of the Baroque abbey and monastic church which is visible from the Danube.  It was built in 1721-1725; the blue and white represents heaven, and the grey and yellow represents earth.  The abbey is situated behind the church.  

Our walking tour started at 9:30am for two hours, but the pace was so slow, Alexander and I explored on our own most of the time.
