Details for: Troppberg Panoramic Route

Brief description

The Troppberg Panoramic Route leads through a true natural jewel: One of the 36 core zones of the Vienna Woods Biosphere Reserve. The 542 m high Troppberg offers a wonderful view which stretches from Vienna and Tulln, across to Wachau, and over to the Alpine foothills, the Schneeberg and the Ötscher. The route from the Troppberg down to Purkersdorf leads along a small section of the Jakobsweg trail.

Description

Tip/Fun-Fact: We will hike through one of the 37 core zones of the Vienna Woods Biosphere Reserve (BPWW). Nature rules here. Ancient trees and deadwood offer a habitat for countless species, which is otherwise hard to find.

Route description Troppberg Panoramic Route

The route is marked as “Weitwanderweg 04” (Long Distance Hiking Route No. 04 – WWW 04) between the railway station in Rekawinkel and the Troppberg. From the car park, we will head west for approx. 400 metres, along Bundesstrasse to the town limits, and then through the residential area, before turning right and entering the forest. In Rauchengern, we will cross the country road. As well as the red long-distance route markers, blue ones will start to appear. Once we have passed the Gasthaus Mirli inn and the Wienerwaldhof Rieger restaurant, we will reach the Troppberg in around 3 hours (542 m). From the large intersection close to the summit, we will take the steep

route (blue) for 5 minutes, until we reach the Troppbergwarte lookout post, with its 24 m high platform. We will then head back to to the large intersection close to the summit, and follow the green hiking route past the Buchberg and Kranawetten (410 m) to Purkersdorf central railway station.
