Self-guided Walking Tour Wachau Charm World HeritageTrail

WINE AND CULTURE ON BEAUTIFUL BLUE DANUBE.

Here in the Wachau area the Danube is even more beautiful than anywhere else. The mild climate and steep hills make it ideal territory for orchards and vineyards. Our hiking week leads through the long-distance trail 'World Heritage Trail Wachau' along the ridges of the Danube Valley. On the varied walking routes you can enjoy magnificent views of one of Austria's oldest cultural landscapes with characteristic vineyards, apricot orchards and the impressive Danube stream in the valley. A varied walking tour leads past steep rocks, across rolling hills and through aromatic vineyards. Little hamlets dot the landscape and apart from the famous wine, delicious apricot delicacies belong to the outstanding regional specialities.

Tour character - Walking: Level 2

You walk mainly on good trails and some paved vineyard paths. Depending on the route, you can make the stages more comfortable or more challenging. The peaks in the Wachau region are not high, but steep in places. Surefootedness therefore is required in some places. This week offers a perfect blend of nature, culture and culinary delight.
