Starting Point for Unforgettable Experiences

Being located in the Helenental Valley, a sojourn into the Wachau valley is also a possibility - complete with a boat trip along the Danube from Krems to Melk, seeing the apricot harvests in Summer or visiting one of the many castles, palaces or cathedrals in the region. There is plenty on offer. In the Voralpen region you can visit the charming town of Reichenau an der Rax, or take the funicular up to the Schneeberg mountain. Every year Mörbisch attracts tourists with the Seefestspiele, a 45 day music and performing arts festival, while St. Margarethen draws in the crowds with its opera festival, and Sooss pulls in the visitors with its fabulous wine.
