The HIRSTORY OF DÜRNSTEIN
during the 11th century the Kuenringer came from the region of Bayern & Sachsen to austria and received big areas around Eggenburg and Gobelsburg as imperial fiefdoms.
In service of the austrian sovereign they acquired the bigger part of the Waldviertel. The Cloister Tegernsee in Bayern used them as reeve for the belongings of the foundation of the Wachau.
Asso von Kuenring bought the area where Dürnstein is located by now. His grandson Hadmar I. Inhabited the beautiful castle Dürnstein first.
1192/93 König Richard I. Löwenherz got captured by order of Leopold V. on the Kuenringer castle. A part of the ransom that got payed for Richard Löwenherz in the 13th and 14th century enabled a buildup and boost from the castle and the surrounding location.
1347 after the distribution of the estate between the Kuenringer borthers Leuthold III. and Johann I. it was finally the day where Dürnstein got declared as city. In the same year Dürnstein got the municipal law, the inhabitants are now identified as citizens.
However, they only did receive their emblem from the emporer Kaiser Friedrich III in the year 1476.
