Vienna Wine Hiking Day
Vienna’s 700 hectares of vineyards and about 140 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 wine landscape can be hiked on a total of four routes. At many points along the way, Viennese vintners offer tastings from cellar and kitchen.
Route 1: Neustift to Nussdorf
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: Strebersdorf to Stammersdorf
Route 2 goes from Strebersdorf to the famous Heurige location Stammersdorf. The landscape is not the only impressive feature of this trail, which is depending on the route up to 9.6 kilometers long. Numerous Heurige along the way offer a pleasant respite from the walk along with delicious culinary treats. Families can also enjoy a visit to the children's farm at the Magdalenenhof (Bisamberg).
Route 3: Ottakring
Route 3 is the shortest route at 2.4 kilometers in length. The loop trail leads via the Paulinensteig to the picturesque Wilhelminenberg Palace. Here as well, there are opportunities to recharge along the way with some good food and wine.
Route 4: Mauer
New is the 4.6 kilometer-long wine hiking route through Mauer. Ideal for participants who already know all the other routes well. The route leads to well-known heurigers, and the Wotruba Church (Church of the Most Holy Trinity (designed by Fritz Wotruba)) is also along the route and worth a visit.
