Printer-friendly version

The Weinviertel has many “hidden places” which you find here!

The gentle rolling hills, fertile land and vineyards feature this region. Nowadays, people come to the Weinviertel to enjoy the open skies and escape the everyday life.

Let the serenity of the Weinviertel inspire you and discover the joy of a pleasurable moment in the here and now.

Home of Wine

Today the cellar lanes in the Weinviertel region are not just the place where wine is produced and stored, but also oases of peace and tranquillity. They are beautiful like the largest one in Hadres, romantic like the one in Falkenstein or impressive like the cellar system in Retz. An especially pleasant way to explore the world of the cellar lanes is a guided tour. Qualified guides will tell you amusing and interesting things about history, architecture, working in the cellar and, naturally, about the wine, which matures deep in the earth and waits to be tasted.


But it is not just the wine…

Cyclists are also impressed by the region, as there are 1,600 km of well-marked, family-friendly cycling paths. Most of them away from main roads, without long rises. 

The routes lead through picturesque vineyards and romantic cellar lanes to ruins, castles and several museums. And naturally to wine: 13 cycling routes of about 760 km - named after types of wines – run through the Weinviertel region. For cyclists who prefer an enjoyable short trip the single routes are usually manageable within a day. For those who want a greater challenge the routes can be combined to form a tour for several days.

Ground steeped in history in front of the gates of Vienna

The museums of the Weinviertel region are not just recommendable when the weather is bad: On a sunny day you should visit the museum ‘Nonseum’ in Herrnbaumgarten near Poysdorf. Countless unusable, seemingly absurd and strange inventions are exhibited there.

All the other cultural offers of the Weinviertel region are also worthwhile: The ‘Museumsdorf Niedersulz‘ (museum village) offers a journey back in time: original buildings like churches, old farms as well as antique mills  put their guests in a nostalgic mood.
