Embark on walks and hikes through imposing natural scenery
All hikes are open all year round and have their own personal flair in every season:
Seeber circular route
This almost 12 km long hike takes you from Aggsbach-Markt, the western end of the Wachau wine-growing region, through a loess hollow path into extensive forests (oak-hornbeam, spruce-larch, mixed beech forest). You pass between meadows, fields and Christmas tree cultures in small villages such as Schlaubing, near the Hubhof (a fortified farm from the 12th century) and the hamlet of Seeb, which gently slopes down the slopes of the 960 m high Jauerling (highest mountain on the Danube) nestle. From there you can take a wonderful ravine to "Bireben" and from there back to Aggsbach-Markt with its parish church of the Assumption (a late Roman pillar basilica from the 13th century) and back to the market square.
Distance: 11.61 km, difficulty: easy, duration: 3 hours
Easy circular route Emmersdorf
This approximately 11.5 km long hike takes you from Emmersdorf, with its old town houses (partly from the Renaissance) with the late Gothic parish church of St. Nicholas, via the "Red Cross" to the small villages of Hain and St. Georgen. Natural oak, hornbeam, pine and spruce forests alternate with meadows and fields and take us to the hamlet of Pömling and the "Bauer und Wirt Langthaler" inn. We continue to the quiet and lovely embedded hamlet of Mödelsdorf (bell tower) and back to Emmersdorf. Again and again you will be amazed by the wonderful views of the world-famous Melk Abbey, the Danube, Schönbühel Palace and Emmersdorf with Rothenhof Palace. Via the parish church and the Kolomani staircase you return to the market street of Emmersdorf.
Distance: 11, 25 km, difficulty: easy, duration: 3 hours
Way of St. James
This Jakobsweg (from Vienna to the Mühlviertel) is a 204 km long section of the Jakobsweg network "Jakobsweg Österreich im Nibelungengau in the southern Waldviertel". Here you can walk on sections of the Jakobsweg or hike to Vienna.
Schlossberg Weg in the Kamp Valley
Starting from Schönberg, near the "Alte Schmiede", it goes to the ruins of Schonenburg, and then to conquer the Manhartsberg steeply at times. Once at the top, march briefly towards Straßertal. Then after a few kilometers turn right towards the Kamptalwarte Zöbing. After that it goes down pretty steeply. You briefly cross the municipal boundary and are in Zöbing. Here you continue to march on the left bank towards Schönberg. In Schönberg-Neustift you take the way back along the river nature trail.
Distance: 11, 95 km, difficulty: easy, duration: 3:30 hours
The best way to end the afternoon or evening after your hikes is with a cozy glass of wine at one of the numerous winegrowers! :)
