Stift Dürnstein - Dürnstein

Wikipedia (translated from the German): "Stift Dürnstein is a former monastery in Dürnstein in the Wachau [Valley] in Lower Austria. Today the buildings and the large property belong to the Augustinerchorherren-Stift Herzogenburg, which also looks after the parish Dürnstein. The tower of the collegiate church with its blue-white coloring is considered the symbol of the Wachau. The collegiate church, which is also a parish church since 1745, has been consecrated as the 'Assumption of Mary in Heaven'."
