Hiking destinations near Vienna

And into the forest I go to lose my mind and find my soul.“ Sometimes you get the feeling that everything is going to collapse over your head because of all the stress of everyday life. You feel trapped in your own four walls and can not think straight. It is not always easy to find a way out of this feeling, but I am glad that I have found a way to put these thoughts aside. Sometimes a short walk, where I can breathe fresh air, or, if something weighs heavier on my soul, it can sometimes be a short hike for a few hours. Today I would like to show you a few personal hiking destinations, which are not far from Vienna and therefore a good destination, if you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.

Since my boyfriend lives in Wiener Neustadt and the Hohe Wand is only 15 minutes away from there, the Hohe Wand is undisputedly ranked 1st as a hiking destination. It does not matter if you stop by in the summer or in the cold winter, a visit is always worthwhile again and you discover something new every time. There are longer routes for hiking, but if you just want to experience something “different”, you can just visit the Skywalk. And if you’re looking for a bit of inner peace, you can go to the nature park and pet some bunnies or feed sheeps.

The castle Seebenstein, also about 15 minutes away from Wiener Neustadt, offers hiking trails as well as a bit of culture and history. There is also the so-called “Turkensturz” in a nature park, a steep rock face and ruin, which is a popular destination for visitors. You can also visit Seebenstein if it is summer or winter, the nature park always offers a nice change.

The Myrafälle (a water lamb in Muggendorf) is the destination with the most beautiful memories for me. The Myrafälle were the first common destination where my boyfriend “kidnapped” us when we met. It was a warm autumn day and the woods were bathed in beautiful colors. The way up to the top is a really nice experience, but also tugs a bit at the forces, as it sometimes goes very steeply upwards. Also I would recommend the Myrafälle only to warmer seasons, as the stairs to the top otherwise very slippery.

Another destination is Schneeberg. So far I have only visited the Schneeberg once. To get to the Schneeberg, you drive with the so-called “Salamander train” or Schneebergbahn, which is always well visited and what you order the cards beforehand. (You can of course hike too, but the way up is rather for experienced hikers) The view from the top is breathtaking and also there are small hiking trails that you can commit. The Schneebergbahn is also limited in time and does not drive over the winter to the mountain.
