This walking tour starts with visiting vintners in Vienna itself (the only European capital with vineyards in its boundaries). Then by public transportation eastward to the province Burgenland; after that travel to the Wachau valley (Danube valley) northwest of Vienna. In each area you will hike to and thru the vineyards tasting local wines.
If you have never tasted Austrian wines, now's the time to try them. This unique tour is designed to visit vintners which will give you a chance to taste wines from several wine regions of Austria such as the hills surrounding Vienna and Vienna itself (the only capital in Europe that has vineyards within its city limits!), the Burgenland (most Eastern province), the Danube River Valley (Wachau – a UNESCO World Heritage Site) and the Kamp River Valley. As true foodies we at Herzerl Tours are convinced that the taste and the "nose" of the different wines do a lot to compliment the regional cuisines and we prove it with the included meals.
