Lower Austria

Find Your Holiday Destination

Lower Austria has many faces. What are the characteristics of this province? That’s hard to tell...
The forested lands of the Waldviertel region? The Mostviertel region, known for its delicious ciders? The areas producing award-winning wines? Or the Alpine summits in the south?

Each of Lower Austria’s regions is different. Each one is unique. Buckle your ski boots and whizz down the snowy slopes in winter.
Stroll through the vineyards and orchards that are in full bloom in spring.
Cycle along the Danube river in summer. Enjoy a glass of wine or two in autumn.

  • Waldviertel Region

    Authentic experiences await you in the Waldviertel region, the north-western part of Lower Austria. Tall pine trees, reservoirs with an abundance of cool water and ancient castles are characteristic features of the landscape in the north. Fields of poppy that are bursting with colour add to the beauty of the scenery. At the same time, they provide the basic ingredient for culinary delicacies that the region is famous for. “Waldviertler Mohnnudeln” (sweet gnocchi with poppy seeds) is one of the signature dishes here.

  • Weinviertel Region

    Located north of Vienna, near the state borders with the Czech Republic and Slovakia, the Weinviertel region is Austria’s heartland of wine production. Large vineyards, rolling hills and grain fields - here, you can enjoy lovely country views. Romantic cellar lanes (“Kellergassen”) and traditional wine taverns (“Heuriger”) are inviting places to spend an indulgent holiday.

  • Danube Region

    From west to east, the Danube region in Lower Austria comprises the historical regions Nibelungengau and Wachau, the valleys Kremstal and Kamptal, the hills of the Wagram, the Traisental valley, the town of Tulln and its surroundings, the Donau-Auen National Park and the ancient Roman city of Carnuntum. The region on the banks of the Danube is especially popular among cyclists and wine aficionados.

  • Mostviertel Region

    This is a region of contrasting landscapes connecting a rolling countryside and fertile soils in the northern part with the wild and romantic mountain scenery in the south. Here, you’ll find traditional farms surrounded by meadows, forests, streams and pastures that are home to all kinds of animals. The most iconic types of fruit are pears and Cornelian cherries. The farmers produce particularly delightful culinary treats. This is the ideal destination for hikers and families.

  • Vienna Alps

    From Vienna, it only takes a one-hour’s drive to the south to see the Alps in all their glory. Marvel at a breathtaking mountain scenery! The high alpine terrain is a paradise for hikers, climbers and mountain bikers. The mountains Semmering, Schneeberg and Wechsel and the hills of the Bucklige Welt region are well known beyond the borders of the province. Here, north of the Alpine divide, you can also hike across the first alpine pastures and stop by a mountain cabin.

  • Vienna Woods

    The Vienna Woods on the southern outskirts of Vienna - where the large forests and lush meadows of the valleys Triestingtal and Wiental meet the vineyard-covered hills of the spa region. Thanks to its proximity to Vienna, this was a popular retreat for the Emperor and Empress. You can still see their traces today. Historic sights such as the Heiligenkreuz Abbey and the town of Baden attract culture enthusiasts in particular.

  • Danube region

    From west to east, the Danube region in Lower Austria comprises the historical regions Nibelungengau and Wachau, the valleys Kremstal and Kamptal, the hills of the Wagram, the Traisental valley, the town of Tulln and its surroundings, the Donau-Auen National Park and the ancient Roman city of Carnuntum. The region on the banks of the Danube is especially popular among cyclists and wine aficionados.
