In July and August is apricot time

In the summer months, everything in the Wachau revolves around the apricot. The origin of the apricot lies in China. Alexander the Great brought the apricot to Greece and Italy. Starting from the Roman Empire, it also reached the Wachau. Today, the Wachauer apricot is considered a European-wide speciality and is also transformed into delicious dessert variations in our hotel. Come and enjoy the unique taste of the Wachauer apricot!

It's important for us to create always fresh and regional dishes for our guests. You can enjoy our apricot dumplings again from July 2023.

Guest Reviews

"My husband and I enjoyed a most delicious and elegant dinner at Restaurant Lowenherz. The wine, the food, the view over the Danube, and the service were simply superb. Peppe, the matre'd, was so welcoming and helpful. It made for a very special evening in the very special town of Duerstein."
