We will hike the panoramic World Heritage Trails around the charming medieval village of Spitz. It is a pleasant 3-hour hike, up and down through vineyards, elm oak and pine tree forests, passing by beautiful rock formations and enjoying amazing views on the surrounding landscapes. We will visit a traditional wine tavern or inn and try local food and wine of the region (optional). I created this tour especially for people who wish to be close to nature, slow down and discover the landscape by walking. We will be far away from the crowds, walking the hidden paths and silent forest trails. Let me show you the magic and hidden beauties of this natural treasure. After a short public bus ride back to our starting point, we continue our journey back to Vienna. The total travelling time from/to Vienna is approx. 2,5 hours. I consider the hike of medium difficulty because of its length and elevation differences. The terrain is partly rocky and rooted (1/3) and partly easy forest road (2/3). MEETING POINT is easily reachable by Vienna subway U4 (15-min ride from city centre Opera/Karlsplatz).
Hi, I'm Karin. I'm the founder of Das Leben Spüren - Embrace Life, an outdoor activity organiser, offering guided hiking tours and excursions for travellers, expats and locals. Already before that, I voluntarily organised similar trips for a global expat network. I am a professional hiking guide and have a master in tourism & leisure management. I love meeting people from all over the world as much as I love nature. Combining both and showing travellers the natural beauties of my home country is what I enjoy most. Besides my passion for nature and exploring new trails, I love yoga, photography, gardening, fashion and delicious food. On my tours, I invite participants to be present at the moment by finding joy and contentment in the sheer beauty of nature, rather than boring them with facts and figures.
With the Wachau region, I have special memories of my student days. It is one of my favourite areas in Austria and I understand why the landscape has been designated UNESCO World Heritage. It is a great joy to explore it through hiking and taste some delicious wine of the area, sitting in one of the local wine taverns. If you cannot find your preferred date in the calendar, please contact me for further options.
