Vienna Woods Tour
At the indicated time, we'll meet in the center of Vienna. We'll then leave the Austrian capital behind to explore a more natural landscape: the Vienna Woods. These forested highlands have been designated a Biosphere Reserve and stretch from the city to the foothills of the Alps.
The first stop will be the Heiligenkreuz Abbey, a Cistercian monastery founded in 1133, making it the oldest continuously occupied monastery of its kind in the world. Visit its Medieval cloisters, where you'll find the tombs of the last members of the Babenberg dynasty.
The route will then continue to Lake Hinterbrühl, where we'll visit its mysterious grotto. This lake grotto has been a tourist attraction for years due to its peculiar layout. Did you know that the Hinterbrühl is also the largest underground lake in Europe?
Finally, the tour will end back at the meeting point around 5 hours later.
The activity takes place with a guide that speaks in English and other languages.
