The Vienna Alps - A Summer Retreat
Find Inner Peace
The Vienna Alps in the mountainous southern part of Lower Austria are a great summer retreat. Escape from the summer heat and the bustle of daily life. Here, you can clear your mind and focus on the important things in life: spending quality time with yourself and your loved ones.
For centuries, people have come to the Vienna Alps to spend their summer. This region has become a popular summer retreat for a good reason: It only takes a one-hour’s drive or a short train ride to leave the hassles of everyday life behind. Take a deep breath. Find yourself again. Escape the noise, heat and stress of the city. The hills of the Bucklige Welt region and the mountains Wechsel, Semmering, Rax, Schneeberg and Hohe Wand are ideal getaways.
On a hot summer’s day, the cool, early morning is the best time to hike from one mountain cabin on the Wechsel to the next, always surrounded by alpine pastures. After a siesta, you can take your family to the ravine Johannesbachklamm or cycle through the Piestingtal valley.
The so-called “Luftkurorte” in the Vienna Alps, health resorts which have a climate and air quality considered beneficial to health, are also refuges from the summer heat. Located at higher altitudes, temperatures are slightly lower here. This is beneficial for your heart and cardiovascular system. The stunning views will open your mind - cultivate self-awareness and see things from a new perspective. Your holiday for body and mind, or perhaps your weekend getaway, is just around the corner.

The Vienna Alps are home to culinary delights that you can’t find anywhere else but here. In some cases, the same traditional recipe has been used for more than 100 years.
Pork from the Schneebergland region (“Schneebergland Schwein”) and apple cider are only some of the delicacies that the region is famous for. Try meat products from small producers or have a glass of craft beer from one of the up and coming private breweries. Sweet treats are the icing on the cake on a culinary tour through the Vienna Alps.
Bucklige Welt - A Gourmet Region
The Bucklige Welt region in the Vienna Alps is one of around 100 Gourmet Regions in Austria. Here, the art of cider making has been passed down from one generation to the next for centuries. Made of fruit ripened in the sun, the cider has an especially delicate flavour. A lot of farmers do not only produce cider but also fruit juice, fruit spirit and brandy. The excellent sparkling apple wine “Unterm Apfelbaum” is also produced here, in the Bucklige Welt region.
