Apple strudel is a popular pastry in Austria. This sweet, layered pastry filled with apple goodness is sure to delight your taste buds. However, strudel can be more than a sweet treat, it can also be savoury. It originated as an easy yet satisfying meal made by the poor. The oldest known strudel recipe was written in 1696 and was a milk-cream strudel. The Viennese have taken strudel and made it famous.

Just outside of Vienna, on the banks of the Danube River, lies a yellow-hued architectural beauty that has been a religious and political centre in the region since Roman times. The building has an impressive two-story library with a colourful frescoed ceiling and boasts many amazing views of the river. Even today, the abbey is a centre of learning and culture and is still one of the most incredible sights along the Danube.
