Vienna Media News 08/2015 Vienna Wine Hiking Day 2015

Vienna is the only capital city in the world with extensive vineyards within the city limits. The Austrian capital’s growing regions are cultivated by around 700 growers. Most of these impressive landscapes can be explored at any time of the year, but the Vienna Wine Hiking Day weekend (Sep 26-27, 2015) adds various trails leading through private gardens that are otherwise off limits.

One of them takes in some of the 19th district’s legendary Heuriger wine tavern locations: from Neustift am Walde to Sievering, Cobenzl and Grinzing and on to Nussdorf. This ten-kilometer route takes in various establishments where hungry and thirsty walkers can give their flagging energy levels a boost. The culinary treats are matched only by the fabulous vantage points along the way, including waypoints on Bellevuestrasse and Eichelhofstrasse. Anyone who would rather take a shortcut can simply hop on one of the regular buses or trams.

Another route on the other side of the Danube takes in the vineyards of the 21st district. It is just under 12 kilometers from Strebersdorf to the popular Heuriger village of Stammersdorf. The itinerary through “Transdanubia”, as the locals jokingly refer to the part of town on the other side of the Danube, also has its fair share of great views and excellent Heuriger. The third trail winds through the vineyards of the 16th district, Ottakring, all the way out to leafy Neuwaldegg.
