#ThrowbackThursday - Duernstein, Austria

#ThrowbackThursday / #tbt:


remembering starting the long, tiring climb up to the Dürnstein Castle ruins

from the town of Dürnstein

in the Wachau Valley

along the Danube River

in northern Austria - 

the castle where, in 1192, King Richard I of England 

or as he was better known, Richard the Lionheart,

was held captive by Leopold V Duke of Austria

after their dispute during the Third Crusade.
