What you'll do
On this hiking tour, we will discover the beauties and gems of the Wachau region - charming towns and amazing UNESCO protected landscapes. We will wander through the historical districts of the towns of Stein and Dürnstein - gothic, renaissance and baroque ensembles delight our eyes. Starting in Stein and following ancient panoramic wine trails, we finally reach our destination, the medieval village of Dürnstein. In its famous castle ruins, the English king Richard Lionheart was imprisoned centuries ago. We will have the chance to visit a traditional wine tavern and try some local wine and food (optional) before heading back to Stein and further on to Vienna. Walking time will be approx. 2,5-3 hours, depending on individual speed. For this hike, you should have an average fitness level. Travelling time from/to Vienna is approx. 2 hours back and forth. If you cannot find your preferred date in the calendar, please contact me for further options or have a look at my other tours to Wachau Valley, Grand Canyon of Austria, Myra Waterfalls and many more.
Hi I'm Karin, the founder of Das Leben spüren - Embrace Life, a company organizing guided hiking tours and excursions for travellers, expats and locals. Already before that, I was organizing similar trips on a voluntary basis for a global expat network. I am also a professional hiking guide and have a master in tourism management. I love meeting people from all over the world as much as I love nature. Combining both and showing foreigners around my beautiful home country is what I enjoy most.
We provide a guided hiking tour as well as the transfer by car from the meeting point in Vienna to the experience and back…
