Brief description

The nature park and Perchtoldsdorfer Heide are the definitive and impressive components of this tour.

Route description Parapluie Strecke

The tour begins with the undisputed highlight, viz. a trip through Perchtoldsdorfer Heide, a steppe on the outskirts of the federal capital and an internationally-renowned ÖkO reserve. The safari through this natural treasure doesn’t take long , but it definitely manages to impress: there are dry grasslands that appear to be Pannonian on both the left and the right, along with sparse vegetation and constant chirping, buzzing and rustling. If the panorama of Vienna reaching up to Kahlenberg and Anninger was not a backdrop, we would think we were in the sleek steppe landscape of Kyrgyzstan. After travelling through the wonderful natural environment of the nature park and passing some very beautiful rest areas (all of which takes about 2.5 to 3 hours), we return to Sonnbergstraße and Berggasse. On account of reasons related to nature protection, it is forbidden to travel using areas other than the road!
