In the center of the town is the Gothic fortified church of the Assumption. A covered flight of steps leads up to the Gothic fortified church of the Assumption, surrounded by a defensive wall and towers. In the square in front of the church stands an 18th C. statue of St John Nepomuk.
Weissenkirchen has a population of around 1800 and is said to be one the prettiest of all the Wachau vine-growing villages, with old houses and courtyards.
This was one of the many beautiful villages in Austria and Germany that we sailed past on our Viking River Cruise.
