Durnstein Castle

( Sightseeing / Castles & Forts )

A Karen Brown Recommendation
tyler corder
Durstein Castle has its own fairy tale: in 1192 Leopold V captured England’s King Richard the Lionheart and hid him in the castle. No one knew where the king was imprisoned. Blondel, the King’s devoted minstrel, devised a plan to find his master and drifted from castle to castle playing King Richard’s favorite songs. When Blondel reached Dürnstein, he played and sang beneath the castle walls. Richard recognized the voice of his minstrel and joined in the singing, which led to his rescue. As in all fairy tales, the story had a happy ending!
