Greifenstein, Austria

8 December 2019

A walk around the "Donaualtarm" (old arm of the Danube) at Greifenstein, then up to the Greifenstein castle, and down to Höflein. An easy but very enjoyable hike.

Shot of the day! A beautiful kingfisher.

A view of the Greifenstein castle.

The odd couple...

Another view of the Greifenstein castle from close by.

And in the far distance on the other side of the Danube, the Kreuzenstein castle.
