Details

Dear RunDUMaDUMers,

This months hike is exploring the lower part of Vienna and the surrounding area. Baden & Gumpoldskirchen are part of the Genusemeile Wienerwald hike held for the first two weeks in September 2019, where one can walk between Sooß and Mödling through the fields and grab a wine or two along the way. It is safe to say it is a very nice weekend of wine and food.

The walk is a real blend of Alpine landscape through a beech & oak tree canopies and open Wiener Wine fields. We start in Gumpoldskirchen Bahnhoff at 10:45am, a little later than usual, so a little sneaky lie in to be had. Heading west into the base of the hills and we jump onto the Genusemeile wanderweg and walk south into Baden hills before walking into the Kurpark.

Baden is a Spa town frequented by Lords, Ladies and High society in the summer months to visit nobility and the house of Hapsburgs. We take a short walk from the OBB station and into the Kurpark, from here we wind our way through the Alpine woods and towards the back of Baden before we eventually get to Thereisenwarte view point and view the wonderful panoramic towards the east of Vienna.

Baden has numerous Heuriger and we shall drop off into one of these after our Kurpark excursion, If you wish to stay for a bite to eat please leave a short message below this posting.
