Vienna’s 700 hectares of vineyards and 190 vintners in the areas around Kahlenberg, Nussberg, Bisamberg, and Mauer, where the Danube and the proximity of the Vienna Woods provide optimal climatic conditions, are unique among major cities. The Vienna Wine Hiking Day is held every year in the autumn. The Vienna Wine Hiking Trail is accessible only on this weekend. The trail cannot be accessed during the rest of the year, because it runs through private vineyards.
Route 1 leads from Neustift am Walde to Nussdorf. In between are Sievering, the Wien Cobenzl winery, and Grinzing, all legendary locations in the Viennese wine and Heuriger tavern traditions. For those who prefer a small section as opposed to the full length of the Wine Trail, your walk can also start here. After all, a hike on the Wine Trail is not supposed to too strenuous – sipping outstanding wines and enjoying the breathtaking views are what it’s all about. One possible stop this ten-kilometer-long trail is the Wien Cobenzl winery, or one of the many heurige along the way.
Route 2 goes from Strebersdorf to the famous Heurige location Stammersdorf. The landscape is not the only impressive feature of this trail, which is about 11.7 kilometer long. Numerous Heurige along the way offer a pleasant respite from the walk along with delicious culinary treats. The Weingut Wieninger is particularly popular and well-known.
Route 3 starts at the Ottakringer Baths and leads to the picturesque Wilhelminenberg Palace by way of the Hansl-Schmid-Weg and Paulinensteig. It then continues via the Himmelmutterweg to Dornbacher Straße (Neuwaldegg tram stop). This route is about 5 kilometers in length. There are opportunities to recharge along the way with some good food and wine.
