Visit a ‘Heurigen’ wine tavern:
To end the day on a happy note, visit one of the local wine taverns. The region’s winemakers offer their wine and simple dishes in a rustic atmosphere. Please note in most of them there is no beer or coffee available.
Individual wine taverns alternate their opening hours and each of them is only open a few weeks each year. Consult a wine tavern calendar (available in the lobby) or ask at the reception.
Swimming, sauna, tennis, climbing:

Going for a walk:
The path along the Weidling brook (approx. 200 m from the hotel), between the Weidling brook and the vineyards in the direction of Weidling, is great for a short walk. Walk along the brook and then turn right following the path up through the vineyards. You will have a beautiful view of our part of Klosterneuburg from up by the black cross. Either take the same path back to the hotel or continue in a small circle through the Agnesstraße and back to the hotel. Duration approx. half an hour to three quarters of an hour, depending on your pace.
If you want a longer walk, take the path that goes from the town cemetery to the Buchberg. The first part (approx. 10 -15 minutes) goes steeply up the mountain on a paved road, but then there is a gravel path that goes slightly up and down the mountain in the direction of the Windischhütte. On the ‘Klosterneuburger Wine Experience Path’ everyone can learn interesting facts about the region’s viticulture. You have an amazing view of the Weidling valley, and you walk past the vineyards of local winemakers. At the Haschhof you come across the open orchard with the fruit education trail. If you reach the Windischhütte, you can stop and have something to eat and drink. But if you don’t want to go that far, you can just stop at any point.
If you prefer a flat landscape, explore the Danube wetlands. The towpath along the water is about 1 km from the hotel. You can walk on it for as long as you like. If the weather is good, you might come across pleasant little spots to sit by the water and get lost in thought.
