Embark on walks and hikes through impressive natural scenery
All hikes are to be visited all year round and have their own personal flair in every season:
This almost twelve-kilometer hike takes you from Aggsbach-Markt, the western end of the Wachau winegrowing area, through a loess ravine in extensive forests (oak-hornbeam, spruce larch, beech mixed forest). You will pass between meadows, fields and Christmas trees in small villages such as Schlaubing, near the Hubhof (a 12th century weir) and the hamlet of Seeb, which gently slopes to the slopes of the 960 m high Jauerling (highest mountain on the Danube) nestle. From there, you can take a beautiful ravine to "Bireben" and from there back to Aggsbach market with its parish church of the Assumption (a late Romanesque pillar basilica from the 13th century) and back to the market square.
Distance: 11.61 km, difficulty: easy, duration: 3 hours
Easy Flatly Emmersdorf
This approximately 11.5 km long hike takes you from Emmersdorf, with its old bourgeois houses (partly from the Renaissance) with the late-Gothic parish church of St. Nicholas, over the "Red Cross" in the small villages Hain and St. Georgen. Natural oak, hornbeam, pine and spruce forests alternate with meadows and fields and bring us to the hamlet Pömling and the tavern "farmer and landlord Langthaler". Continue on to the quiet and lovely embedded hamlet Mödelsdorf (bell tower) and back to Emmersdorf. Again and again, you will be surprised by the wonderful views of the world-famous Melk Abbey, the Danube, Schönbühel Castle and Emmersdorf with Rothenhof Castle. Via the parish church and the Kolomanistiege you return to the market street of Emmersdorf.
Distance: 11, 25 km, difficulty: easy, duration: 3 hours
The best way to end the afternoon or evening after your walks with a glass of wine at one of the many winemakers! :)
This Way of St. James (from Vienna to the Mühlviertel) is a 204-kilometer long signposted section of the Jakobweg network "Way of St. James in the Nibelungengau in the southern Waldviertel". Here you can make part of the Way of St. James or hike to Vienna.
Schlossberg Weg im Kamptal
Starting from Schönberg, near "Alte Schmiede", it goes to the ruin Schonenburg, then at times steeply to conquer the Manhartsberg. Once at the top, take a short march towards Straßertal. After a few kilometers turn right towards Kamptalwarte Zöbing. Then it goes pretty steep downhill. You briefly cross the municipal boundary and are in Zöbing. Here you continue on the left bank towards Schönberg. In Schönberg-Neustift take the way back along the river educational path.
Distance: 11, 95 km, difficulty: easy, duration: 3:30 hours
