Easter Sunday in Durinstein and Easter Monday in Vienna

Looking to visit Göttweig Abbey , Graffenegg Castle and Durnstein, Austria this 2019 Easter Sunday. Will I find any tourist sites open ? On Easter Monday I will be in Vienna. Will I find any of the landmark sights open since it is a holiday?

Many tourist sites will be open Easter Monday but the hours are reduced, so best you check into the open hours duration for those places you want to see.

Easter Sunday is pretty low keyed.

If too many places in Durnstein are closed , then just walk about, visit the Blue Church, have lunch at a sidewalk café , it should be warm enough then.

It never hurts to check the museums or sites you want to visit, but as a rule of thumb:
While museums usually close on Mondays, they stay open as on Sundays when that Monday is a public holiday (like on Easter Monday).
Sunday/holiday opening hours are usually not shorter than those on any other day.
Just when visiting churches or other religious sites, you can expect more services being held both on Easter Sunday as well as on Easter Monday. Which can mean that you are not supposed to walk around (while the service is going on).
