If you have only 1 day to explore the Danube Valley, we highly recommend one of the tours listed. If you have more time, however, rent a car and explore this district yourself, driving inland from the river now and then to visit the towns and sights listed. You can also take public transportation to the towns we've highlighted.
Before you venture into the Danube Valley, pick up maps and other helpful information at the tourist office for Lower Austria, Postfach 10.000, A-1010 Vienna (tel. 01/536106200; fax 01/536106060; www.niederoesterreich.at).
