Full description

Lower Austria is the cradle of Austrian viticulture, and this private wine tasting tour is your chance to visit the area's beautiful forests and vineyards of the Thermal Region, just south of Vienna. Take a 30-minute train ride to the heart of the Vienna Woods for a wine-filled day.

Summer (April-October) Your summer tour will begin with a hike in the spa town of Baden, which was once a favorite country retreat of Beethoven.

From there you will walk along forest trails towards a magnificent elevated viewpoint overlooking the Vienna Basin in all directions. This spot alone is a photographer's dream.

Continue the trip by entering the neighboring vineyards, wandering through row upon row of lush green vines.

Winter (November-March) Your train will bring you directly to the vineyards of one of Austria’s oldest wine-making institutions, steeped in middle-age tradition and history.

While there, learn about how the monastic orders became wine pioneers of their time and their influence on Austrian viticulture. Sample a glass of local sekt (sparkling wine) to toast your arrival to Austrian wine country. The afternoon segment of both the winter and summer tours will be the same. You will continue to the picturesque wine village of Gumpoldskirchen for lunch at a traditional Austrian wine tavern.

From there, you'll visit a local winery to enjoy an extensive wine tasting featuring the region's specialty wines, and to ask questions to local experts about modern-day wine making.

Your tour later concludes with a short train ride back to the city center, just in time for your evening schedule.

  • Live tour commentary provided in English by an Austrian wine expert
  • Extensive wine tasting and Q&A in Gumpoldskirchen, led by a local winemaker

Meeting point

We meet outside the main entrance to Vienna's 'Wien Mitte' train station, next to the digital clock and temperature gauge. The station is easy to reach on foot from practically anywhere in the city center, as it is centrally located. If you prefer to use other means of transport, then you can of course arrive via taxi or tram depending on where you are staying. The easiest method, however, is on the u-bahn (underground/metro). Just head to the u-bahn station 'Landstraße', which is on the U3 orange and the U4 green lines. Look for the 'Landstraße Hauptstraße' exits and you should then be at street level at the main entrance. We meet here at 09:10 in summer (Apr-Oct) and 09:40 in winter (Nov-Mar).
