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 wild flowers. 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 and you must have an adequate physical fitness. As well, you must be free from vertigo and sure-footed.
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.
