A large role is played by culinary delicacies. Delicious specialities from the region are available as souvenirs and also as on-site refreshments. The selection ranges from roasted chestnuts to cheese and smoked fish to sweet items such as Wachau apricot jam. The famously good punch and spicy mulled wine are also popular with visitors.

Dürnstein castle was built in the 17th century. Today it is privately owned and houses a 5-star hotel.
