Hiking along the Danube brings its own special pleasures. The landscape is especially scenic on hikes through the many vineyards and cellar-lined roads in the wine regions along the Danube in Lower Austria.
In Kamptal-Wagram-Tullner Donauraum, you can find out interesting facts about the various grape varieties in the region on a hike through the Königstetten vineyards. The Planet Hiking Trail in Königstetten on Tulbinger Kogel or the Educational Wine Trail in Traismauer are other popular hiking routes.
There are large hills with good lookout points in Römerland Carnuntum – Marchfeld near Hainburg. You can explore this region on eight routes totaling 180 kilometers. Every one of the 8 main routes in these wonderful hiking areas is devoted to a specific theme such as “Through the Desert”, “Danube Wetlands Hike”, “Roman Walks” or “Wine Hikes in Carnuntum.”
One of Austria’s most splendid long-distance hiking trails can be explored in the Wachau - Nibelungengau - Kremstal region. The 180 km Wachau World Heritage Trail Trail passes by gently rolling vineyards, rugged cliffs and historic ruins in its 14 sections. Anyone who has always wanted to make a pilgrimage on the Way of Saint James can do a shorter and scenic version of it on the section of this pilgrimage route going along the Danube in Lower Austria. Besides the well-known Wachau leg between the two Benedictine monasteries of Göttweig and Melk, you are also encouraged to explore the next leg, from Melk to Persenbeug in the Nibelungengau. As you hike through the region, you take in the scenic Wachau, a UNESCO World Heritage landscape, and have ample opportunity to unwind and relax.
We have great package holidays for hikers. Have fun perusing them!
