Hiking in Vienna Wine Country

Vienna, Vienna, Austria
14 Kudos
Flag
On our last day in Vienna, we decided to make a visit to wine country and what better way to experience it than with a hike. We took one of the vintage trams all the way to the end of the line at the outskirts of the city where we caught the 1a trail. The beginning of the trail isn't much but it meanders along the river for a bit before winding up the side of a hill. The trail was mostly paved, which was good because it was pretty steep! It offered gorgeous views of the surrounding area and we even could walk straight up to some of the vineyards! Unfortunately the wine taverns were closed since it was Tuesday, but we stopped for a beer at a cute little cafe about midway. It was a wonderful way to get out in nature and explore wine country.
