Ruined Castle Dürnstein

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Some of the most beautiful stretches of the Danube River are in the Wachau Valley in northwestern Austria.  In this drone video by ClearSky, you'll get a bird's eye view of Dürnstein Castle, one of the most well-known landmarks in this fabled region.    Built in the early 12th century, the castle was used to imprison King Richard I (the Lionheart) of England when he was returning from leading the Third Crusade.  Dürnstein has been in a semi-ruined state since being ransacked by Swedish troops during the Thiry Years War.
