Vienna 3-Hour Hiking Tour of Wiener Wald

1. Vienna 3-Hour Hiking Tour of Wiener Wald

Hike the most accessible parts of the Vienna Woods (Wienerwald) on the "house mountains" of Kahlenberg and Leopoldsberg, visible from many parts of the city and both within the administrative boundaries of Vienna. After you’ve met your hiking guide, walk a rather steep but paved footpath until you reach the top of Leopoldsberg, from where you'll have panoramic views over Vienna and the majestic Klosterneuburg Monastery. Continue on a comfortable path through the forest to Kahlenberg hill, before a hilly descent among hillside vineyards to end at Grinzing, Vienna's best-known wine village, lined with rustic restaurants. Go to Heuriger, where the wine owners of the region sell their wine, and purchase a bottle or two to enjoy later!

Vienna: Full-Day Vienna Woods Wine Tasting Tour

2. Vienna: Full-Day Vienna Woods Wine Tasting Tour

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. As a reward, you'll take a break among the vines for an open-air wine tasting at a local producer. 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 to your arrival in the 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 all of 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.

What people are saying about Lower Austria

Our guide Marieta made this tour so special for us. My wife and I love having authentic experiences in the countries we are in—and this was that. It’s a private tour. Marieta met us outside our place and we took the metro to the bus to the walking path. Amazingly gorgeous scenery, so close to Vienna. You would be missing out on a true Wien experience if you miss the nearby wine country. We had lunch in Grinzig. Loved being out of the city. Marieta is a wealth of information and so kind. Absolutely recommend her and this tour.

We had a lot of fun on the day

Our guide Marieta had shown us wonderful paths through the Vienna Woods and knew a lot of interesting things to tell about this area. We will definitely book another tour with her. The whole day will be remembered for a long time. Thanks to dear Marieta!!!
