Lower Austria: Summer Refreshment, Entertaining Trips, and Unique Experiences in the Mountains III
In the two preceeding articles of our miniseries on the mountains of Lower Austria presenting tips and points of interests for the summer. We are going to continue in this today.
In case you stay over night at Schutzhaus Vorderötscher cottage you can make a trip to the neighboring mountains Gemeindealpe on the following day. These mountains are famous for their lime pastures and splendid panoramas. Less fit tourists can take a cable car up the mountains. Also, you can travel to Weinerbruck train station. There starts Mariazellerbahn, a railroad which makes you feel nostalgia over the old days. The train rides to Mitterbach.
Terzerhaus is another point of interest sought by all tourists. Apart from great seats on its terrace the places gives you the most beautiful vista over the entire area.
There are some great treks to make in Reichenau an der Rax. Rax-Seilbahn cable car is going to be your place to start. The cable car is 90 years old this year. It was completely renovated. It offers you a magnificent view of the Rax mountains. The nature around is so marvelous that going from one cabin to another is going to be your favorite sport.
ou can experience such a great 2-day trip if you hike from Raxalpe alpine inn and go by Ottohaus, and Neue Seehütte cabins to Habsburghaus. At the latter, you can stay overnight. There you also experience the most beautiful sundown in the Rax. There is an alpine garden of 4 000 m² by Ottohaus cabin.
To people who like to spend the night in the valley we recommend to stay at Raxalpenhof. There is an amazing herb garden. Make time for a short visit at Wartholz chateau. This former emperor's villa has an idyllic park unveiling you a beautiful view over the Rax mountains. An elegant cafe in the old chateau garden will lure you in to stay a bit longer.
Payerbach is another place worth making a trip to. Semmerin railroad which belong to UNESCO's world cultural heritage and Schwarza viaduct are landmarks you can see there. The viaduct fascinated us for its 13 vault arches. Personally, we recommend you to visit the Wineduct, i.e. wine shops inside Schwarza viaduct. Inside them you can taste wines originating in the area spanning from Vienna down to Terst. And we could go on and on in our recommendations...
Tourists love the summer in the mountains of Lower Austria not only for splendid vistas or trails. They love it also for regional cuisine. Don't hesitate no more. Make some free time to visit our neighbor's.
