DANUBE LOWER AUSTRIA - VIENNA
The inhabitants of the Mostviertel region have a saying: 'People love living wherever the pear thrives'. This area of Lower Austria is akin to a gigantic garden in which the local people devote their existences to the production of partially fermented pear cider. The several hundred thousand pear trees in the region burgeon abundantly with this most venerable of fruit due to the beneficially mild climate to the south of the Danube. Visitors are immediately struck by the beauty of the scenery, the quaint villages and magnificent quadratic farmhouse courtyards.
Wallsee-Sindelburg is a place that offers rest and relaxation, and is situated on the Danube in the more densely wooded northern part of the Mostviertel region. Guests can look forward to various options for relaxing, indulging in sporting activities and finding great entertainment.
The picturesque town has its own uniquely idyllic attraction. The town is right on the banks of the Danube and there are many house with wonderful floral decorations. There is also the magnificent Habsburg palace and grounds which is still home to a great grandson of Emperor Franz Josef.
