Self-guided Walking Tour Wachau World Heritage Trail

The beautiful blue Danube, vineyards and culture

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 thought 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 gardens and the impressive Danube stream in the valley.

Little hamlets dot the landscape and apart from the famous wine, delicious apricot delicacies belong to the outstanding regional specialties.
