The AIOV will go on the Vienna Wine Walk, Neustift to Nussdorf, this Saturday October 1. Kate Roughan will lead.
There are two options for Saturday’s hike. If you want to start off with a little challenge, we will meet in Neustift and hike to Cobenzl where we refuel ourselves and meet those who will be starting from Cobenzl.
11:30 – meet at Neustift am Walde and walk up to Cobenzl. This is a 4km hike with the first 2km going mostly uphill and through some beautiful vineyards. The second 2km is fairly flat and goes through the woods, sometimes near the road. It does not look like there will be a lot of places to stop and try food and wine on this leg. Take bus 35A to Salmonnsdorf from Spittelau Ubahn stations (about 20-25 minutes on bus) and get off at Neustift am Walde. There will be an information booth there where we can assemble and get the maps and brochure.
13:00 – meet at Cobenzl and hike the remaining trail 7-8km of Neustift to Nussdorf, which is mostly rolling vineyards. There are several places to stop and admire scenery and to sample wine and food. We’ve seen pig roasts and live bands on this hike in previous years. It is very enjoyable.
And for those that can’t get enough of hiking through vineyards…check the link for other walks offered if you want to go on your own on Sunday!
RSVP isn’t required but it would help to know how many are interested in the hike so that we don’t leave anyone behind, especially in Coblenzl. Please send an email to c.roughan at iaea.org.
