The “Wiener Weinwandertag” (Vienna Wine Hiking Day) is held every year on the last weekend of September.
One of the unique things about Vienna is that it’s the only capital city in the world with more than 700 hectares of vineyards within the city limits. During the Wiener Weinwandertag one can hike on the trails that lead through private vineyards that are normally inaccessible during the rest of the year.
The wine landscape can be hiked through on three routes with a total length of 25 kilometers. At many points along the way, Viennese vintners offer tastings from cellar and kitchen.
From every single of those Viennese house mountains you can enjoy a great view over the city whilst drinking a glass of wine. Especially during Autumn, the trees of Vienna Woods are changing its colours and are definitely worth a visit.
You just need to bring your own cup… 😉
BLAGUSS DMC TIP:
And to everyone who likes to choose the more comfortable way, we recommend „Heurigen Express“. It is a tiny train on wheels that takes passengers through picturesque wine towns, past wonderful vineyards and old vintners’ houses. Round off the journey by experiencing a real Viennese ‘heuriger’, or wine tavern.
