A culinary autumn in Lower Austria

Holidays in the Weinherbst, the “wine autumn” referred to as the fifth season in Lower Austria can be organised in all sorts of ways.

Regardless of whether you’re taking a walk, a short holiday or just an extended break from everyday life, what better way is there to enjoy a chat, dream and switch off from everyday cares than rambling through the region’s golden yellow vineyards or attending a wine party in the traditional Kellargassen (“wine cellar lanes”)? In Lower Austria’s wine-growing culture, excellent wines go hand in hand with outstanding architecture, which masterfully combines tradition and modernity.

Lower Austria wine autumn

Lower Austria’s winegrowers are known for their wines and special wine architecture well beyond the state’s borders. During the Lower Austria wine autumn, the winegrowers celebrate the year’s harvest in the 1,100 Kellargassen along the 830-kilometre Wine Road running through Lower Austria. Weinviertel offers an abundance of events in the wine autumn. For those who prefer to enjoy the local wines in smaller groups, picnicking at the prettiest spots in Weinviertel is highly recommended. Wine taverns are also great places to sample local specialities and excellent wines with friends. More than 80 winegrowers invite visitors to the Genussmeile, the “pleasure mile”, which is the longest bar in the world and situated in the Vienna Woods. Whether you’re actually coming for a wine-tasting holiday or just coming on a culinary excursion, Lower Austria has something for every taste.

Enjoyment in the autumn is a must

In Waldviertel, visitors are welcome to attend harvest festivals celebrating the poppy, potato and carp. The Mostviertel JUST ENJOY tour will whisk you away on a culinary discovery tour.
