O que você fará
After a good hour's drive from Vienna, we will reach our starting point, the famous medieval village of Duernstein. You will be delighted by its charm and the gorgeous landscape surrounding it. During our hike, we will enjoy truly fantastic views over the green hills, the Danube, the castle ruins and the village of Duernstein. Inhale the air, filled with aromatic scents of the holm oaks, pine trees, rocks and wildflowers. Lean against the sun-drenched rocks and feel their power. This unique landscape has an almost Mediterranean touch and resembles the ones in Southern Europe. Ascents and descents are somewhat steep in places and you must have adequate physical fitness. As well, you must be free from vertigo and sure-footed. Please note that the path is very rocky, stony and rooted and is quite slippery without the right shoes. After having reached the highest point of the hike, we continue with the ascent through a beautiful landscape with holm oaks and interesting rock formations, until we reach the castle ruins, where Richard Lionheart was kept in prison centuries ago. Total walking time is approx. 3 hours, depending on individual speed. In the end, we will have a well-deserved snack and local wine in one of the wine taverns (optional) before heading back to Vienna. If you cannot find your preferred date in the calendar, please contact me for further options.
Hi, I'm Karin! I am 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.

The unique landscape has an almost Mediterranean touch with its holm oak forests.

Please note: for this hike, you need proper hiking shoes/boots with a good grip, because the terrain is very rocky, rooted and partly steep uphill/downhill. As well, you must be free vom vertigo and sure-footed. Compared to my other Wachau tours this is the most difficult in terms of the terrain.
