Schlosspark Laxenburg is one of the most famous and important cultural monuments of the 19th century in Vienna with its extensive park, the Old Palace and the Blue Court. In addition to the cultural monument Schloss Laxenburg you can also excersise various sports and use onsite sports facilities. It is also recommended a boat trip on the palace pond and the particularly imposing Franzensburg not only make children's eyes shine.
Here you can also learn what great influence the monks in the fields of agriculture and forestry as well as in the craft in the wooded Sattelbachtal had. Here we recommend a guided tour of the impressive Stift Heiligenkreuz (Heiligenkreuz Abbey). The very special charm of Heiligenkreuz Abbey can be felt by listening to the Gregorian chants of the monks in the monastery.
The Naturpark Sparbach (Sparbach Nature Park) is an outstanding and, above all, exciting destination for young and old alike: Austria's oldest nature park lies in the heart of the southern Vienna Forests (Winerwald) and makes hearts beat faster with free-roaming wild boars.
In the Römertherme Baden visitors can experience the centuries-old spa tradition and wellness modernity. Here you have to plan a pleasurable stay while bathing in the healing sulphurous water.
Stift Klosterneuburg (Klosterneuburg Abbey) - where heaven and earth meet - unites sacred and secular culture, history and art in a very special way. Attractive themed tours can be undertaken in the abbey: e.g. The wine cellar tour offers a deep insight into the monastery's wine shop and the baroque wine cellars.
