If you enjoy drinking great wine then you will love the wine trail in Langenlois! Immerse yourself in a wine culture that has almost 1.000 years of history. The town of Langenlois in Lower Austria is famous for its white wines like Grüner Veltliner or Riesling. The wine trail (German: “Weinweg”) leads through the local vineyards. Over asphalt and gravel you follow ancient routes that have been leading winegrowers for centuries to their vineyards around Langenlois. Along this route over 60 attraction elements, interactive stations and information boards were installed. They will bring you closer to the winegrowing area, the winegrowers and the wines.
Many topics related to viticulture are treated at the wine trail in Langenlois. You will learn about grape varieties, tillage, crop protection and much more. And most of the informative and entertaining information texts are supported by various objects. For example, an oversized earthworm indicates that this is the topic of “tillage in the vineyard”. In order to emphasize the importance of the topic “pruning”, the Langenloiser have planted a pruning shears of gigantic proportions in the ground. On a “weather swing” one can reflect on the whims of the weather.
Drink wine from the wine safe
The path will take you to places with breathtaking views over the wine-growing region Kamptal. Not far from here is also the impressive Kronsegg castle ruin. In addition, there are so-called “wine safes” at three rest stops of the wine trail, in which well-cooled wine bottles wait for the weary hikers. For 25 euros per person you will get the key to the wine safes at Ursin Haus (address below). Also included are a booklet, a small hiking map, a Langenlois-themed glass for drinking the wine and a practical shoulder bag for these utensils.
