Leave the city behind and discover the beautiful Vienna Woods, visit the Mayerling Hunting Lodge, explore the Heiligenkreuz Abbey and take a boat ride on the largest underground lake in Europe.
Vienna Woods Tour
After meeting at 9:15 in the centre of Vienna, you'll leave the Austrian capital behind to explore a more natural landscape: the Vienna Woods, the forested highlands and designated Biosphere Reserve that stretch from the city itself to the foothills of the Alps.
After a journey of about 50 minutes, you'll arrive in the beautiful Helenental Valley and make your way to the former Mayerling Hunting Lodge. Since the tragic deaths of Crown Prince Rudolf and Baroness Vetsera here in 1889, the lodge has been converted into a memorial chapel in dedication to the couple.
Your next 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 day then continues with a tour of Baden, one of the oldest spa towns in Austria. Once here, we'll take a guided tour of the centre of the town, where we can see some of its most emblematic places; such as the church of St. Stephan and the springs themselves.
The tour will end back at the meeting point around 1:45 pm.
