What you'll do

On this hiking tour, we will discover the beauties and gems of the Wachau region - charming towns and amazing UNESCO protected landscapes. We will wander through the historical districts of the towns of Stein and Dürnstein - gothic, renaissance and baroque ensembles delight our eyes. Starting in Stein and following ancient panoramic wine trails, we finally reach our destination, the medieval village of Dürnstein. In its famous castle ruins, the English king Richard Lionheart was imprisoned centuries ago. We will have the chance to visit a traditional wine tavern and try some local wine and food (optional) before heading back to Stein and further on to Vienna. Walking time will be approx. 2,5-3 hours, depending on individual speed. For this hike, you should have an average fitness level. Travelling time from/to Vienna is approx. 2 hours back and forth. MEETING POINT is easily reachable by Vienna subway U4 (15-min ride from city centre Opera/Karlsplatz).

Karin

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.
