Wild nature, sunny vineyards, ancient walls and breathtaking views. Lower Austria offers the most beautiful places and tourist destinations made for your social networking profile. Today, we will advise you on which routes and journeys to follow the most interesting photos. These 6 hiking trails are just across the border.
The Wachau World Culture Heritage Trail
On the 180 km long hiking trail, you will find the most picturesque trails in the Danube Valley. There are many romantic ruins, castles and monasteries, as well as the magnificent Wachau wine region with stone terraces and steep slopes. Feel free to stop by the Welterbesteig Wachau Cultural Heritage Trail along the Aggstein Castle Ruins and add a bit of romance to your social network profile. The unique 900-year-old castle towering over the Danube Valley will surely impress everyone.
On the next trip, this time on the Weißenkirchen-Spitz route, stone terraces and the Rotes Tor viewpoint are a popular destination for Instagram accounts, offering views of the old wine town of Spitz.
Peaks and Glutches Near Ötscher
The Ötscher-Tormäuer Nature Park, part of the Mostviertel, offers countless fantastic views and wonderful fauna and flora. Learn the waterfalls, the unique stone formations and the Ötschergräben gorge, known as the Grand Canyon of Austria. The Alpine part of the Mostviertel boasts a majestic hilly landscape, mountain huts and pastures that provide a soothing view of grazing cows and endless green meadows.
Hohe Wand Nature Wand
Only 40 minutes from Vienna you will find one of the most photographed places in Lower Austria - the rocky massif in the Gutenstein Alps. On the Felsenpfad trail, you can follow 200 steel stairs and explore the park from above. Another amazing place for your profile is the Skywalk - an observation deck where you feel like you're standing in the air.
Peilstein – Limestone Rock Wall
The 716 meters high mountain of Kalkberg is a frequent instagram destination due to its steep rock walls and beautiful views. Go this way, try to find a "new look" and make the most original photo.
Wild nature and wild river - the Ysperklamm gorge in the southern Waldviertel. Particularly fascinating are the extraordinary rock formations and waterfalls. Try to photograph artistically with a "white veil" effect using clear water and a long exposure.
Wind Mill in Retz
The route of the Retz Trail leading through the idyllic vineyards and the picturesque cellar alley invites tourists for an unforgettable wine holiday. We recommend visiting the largest wine cellar Retzer Erlebniskeller and the so called Heuriger. Heuriger is an exceptional winery offering not only this year's wines (so called St. Martin, ie until November 11) and musts, but also hot or cold homemade dishes. On the tourist route, which is only an hour away from Brno, it is definitely worth taking a picture of a windmill located in Retz.

La Gacilly - Baden Photo is the largest photo festival in Europe that has been held in Baden since 2018. The free exhibition takes place from 1 June to 30 September 2019. Its slogan is Anthem An Die Erde.
