The wishing table

Autumn time is harvest time. Taste your way from farm store to farm store and enjoy the products at the “Buschenschänken” and restaurants.

A “Sturm (new wine)” and chestnut hiking trip with stops at local taverns or a hike on the mountain pastures surrounded by forests in colorful attire, there is no better way to experience autumn in Austria.


Fun in the snow
