09.30 arrival in Wienerbruck, entrance to the nature park & beginning of the hike
16.00 (approx.) arrival U4 Wien Hütteldorf bus terminal
After a one and a half hours ride from Vienna, we reach the base camp of the nature park. We pay a small entry fee and start our hike. The first part is mostly downhill, passing by several waterfalls carrying more or less water, depending on season and weather conditions.
The rest of the trail is quite evenly following the river, mostly on narrow wooden bars. Along the way, we find many stony and sandy beaches, perfect for a swim or a lunch break in the middle of nature. 1,5 hours later we reach the refuge – a break can be made either there or along the trail.
After visiting the last waterfall we make our way back through a pleasant shady forest road. In the end, we take the scenic train “Mariazellerbahn” to reach our starting point at the base camp (10-minute ride), before driving back to Vienna.
