Tips in the surroundings

  • The ruins of Hinterhaus are a popular excursion destination in the Wachau region. Its defensive walls, Romanesque palace and keep are still well preserved and freely accessible all year round. Particularly worth seeing during the great festival at the summer solstice.
  • The Tausendeimerberg, a 314-meter-high rock cone is considered the landmark of the historical market Spitz. The mountain got its name a long time ago, when it is said to have yielded up to one thousand buckets of wine in good years.
