A water park recreational facility and sandy beach volleyball courts are just the beginning of the endless possibilities for fun and action. Enjoy!

  • Day 4

    Strudengau – Wachau, approx. 50 km Shortly after Pöchlarn, you will enter into the world-renowned valley of the Wachau, one of the most gorgeous riverside landscapes Europe has to offer.
