Hotel in Lower Austria - A guest in the heartland of Austria

Riparian forests, alpine pastures and steppes, lakes, gorges and hilly landscapes, in addition to moors, river valleys and courses as well as impressive mountains: few landscapes in Europe are as diverse as Lower Austria. This region - to put it very casually: the area around Vienna - is considered the Austrian heartland. With the Danube flowing through it on the west-east axis, it consists of the Waldviertel or Weinviertel to the north of the river and the Mostviertel or Industrieviertel to the south. Lower Austria consists of 40 percent forest, 42 percent farmland, 11 percent meadows - a wonderfully varied landscape, green as far as the eye can see. So nature lovers have plenty to do on holiday in Lower Austria if they want to actively experience all the exciting areas on hiking trails, in the saddle of a bicycle or on boards and snowshoes in the Viennese or Eastern Alps. And then the region also adds a lot culturally! Of the numerous monasteries and convents, Melk Abbey, founded in 1089, is the oldest, Klosterneuburg Abbey was founded in 1114, and Heiligenkreuz Abbey in 1133. Schallaburg Castle, Grafenegg Castle and Thürnthal Castle are just a few of the places to visit with their magnificent rooms, which are often used for concerts. And secular art and culture can be experienced on holiday in Lower Austria at the Lower Austrian State Museum in St. Pölten, the Caricature Museum, the Carnuntum Archaeology Park, the Egon Schiele Museum in Tulln, the Oskar Kokoschka House in Pöchlarn and in many places where festival stages are set up in summer and a wide range of music is offered.
