What you'll do
We will meet at a Metro station and travel 30 minutes to a small town called Greifenstein, located on the Danube river. We will begin by visiting the waterfront of a small quiet lake attached to the otherwise fast flowing Danube If the weather is good, you may choose to swim in the calm lake. I will give an explaination of the history of the town, providing details about the local castle, the nearby Vienna woods and the local power station and ship locks. We will see the masonic facade of a church directly from the lake. From here we will walk through narrow and charming streets, observing the eclectic architecture of elevated garden houses. I will explain to you why the homes are built this way. We will stop for cold refreshments and a snack. We have the option to hop into a pedal boat for a 20 minute ride on calm waters surrounded by green hills. Finally, we will have a short rest before returning by train to Vienna after our wonderful city escape.
Join me for a 20 minute train ride along the Danube river to a town called Greifenstein. I have a typical wooden garden house here, also offered on Airbnb. I know the best spots for taking pictures and releasing tension from travels. I can also explain the history of the area and show you a side of Austria which you cannot experience in the city. I have worked sucessfully in the hospitality industry on three different continents, for over 20 years, and would enjoy being your host! I am able to speak german, english and spanish fluently.
Sandwich with cheese, ham or vegetarian spreads.
Austrian refreshments Delicious locally produced juices.

Where you'll be
This magical river town is small enough to discover in a couple of hours. Enjoy pure nature only 30 minutes from Vienna. Here you will see a special type of construction for homes located so close to the river, where waters can rise and flow under the homes! Of course, we will enjoy a dry time and admire these beautiful little cottages and blooming gardens. This area is known as a recovery zone, for people wanting to escape city life for rest.
