We, Monika (61 years) and Leopold (62 years), live in Dürnstein, a small but very touristic town in the Wachau valley. We have two sons, one daughter, one daughter-in-law and two grandsons. Our eldest son and his family and also our daughter live in Vienna and the youngest sons lives i Dornbirn. We all are musicians, play in the local brass band and like to sing. We have a small vineyard on the castle hill and we make our own wine.
