Our hiking trip with Michael was truly the highlight of our trip to Vienna! Michael was incredibly friendly and professional, and he went above and beyond to make a day hiking a great one. He chose the hike based on our timeline, and he chose perfectly! We really enjoyed exploring a castle and ruins that I'm sure we wouldn't have been able to find on our own. We highly recommend Michael as your hiking guide and hope to see him again on our next trip!

Absolutely amazing tour, the highlight of my vacation. Michael is a very professional guide, spoke good English (always a concern for American travelers), and he provided extra items for comfort. He loaned some waterproof rainproof pants to me, as we were hiking on a rainy day and he did not want my jeans to soak through. He explained the history of the area and discussed local customs and politics while we hiked. He walked ahead of me on the forest path and even kicked sticks out of my way, so that I would not trip! He even took many photographs with me posing by the castles, and later sent them to me. This was a very personalized trip, and he varied our itinerary because of the weather. The heavy rain would have made some parts of the rocky trail slippery, so we used the time to instead drive to visit a second castle. It was honestly like traveling with a friend instead of a hired tour guide.

Product description


A hike in the Wachau, directly above the Danube, in a stunningly beautiful, historic setting. In the heart of the Wachau, which is one of the most famous regions of Austria, the old Kuenringerstadt Dürnstein serves us as a starting point. A magnificent rock and forest landscape, cultural monuments, such as probably the most famous castle ruins in Austria or old vineyards on stone terraces dominate this hike. This four-hour tour requires sure-footedness, no fear of heights (for the standard route) and some stamina. In wet conditions or for non-vertigo-free persons a simplified round is chosen. If possible, we use the ferry (when travelling by car), this is the best way to Dürnstein. At the end of the tour, you can still explore Dürnstein on your own. This tour is a treat for the senses. One experiences the Wachau feels the elements. The story is peculiarly tangible. We connect everything worth seeing in a pleasant round that offers many vantage points. We are always looking forward to doing this tour.
