The newest episode of our series on microadventures takes us to Vorarlberg, the westernmost state of Austria. We introduce you to six little adventures in the ‘Ländle’ that help you break out of everyday life for a short time: from architecture, art, and culture to culinary journeys of discovery, to exciting nature experiences, everything is included!
We want to keep you busy and entertained, even in times of lockdown! Therefore, we went on a discovery journey throughout all nine states of Austria to look for so-called ‘’microadventures’’ you could go on to spice up your weekend or time off. Today, we’ll start with Styria. Did you know that it is also called “the Green Heart of Austria” due to its extensive and diverse nature? Starting from the glaciers at Dachstein in the north to the South Styrian Wine Route (Styria is not only famous for its wine but also its specialty pumpkin seed oil!), the state has something for everyone. So, let’s set off on our first microadventure, and let yourself get inspired!
Late fall has arrived in Vienna. The days are already short and dark, and it’s been a while since we last had a sufficient dose of sunlight. With the dim light and the morning mist, the city is often covered in a magical twilight.
As tempting as it might be to just stay in your warm and cozy home, we decided to explore some places in Vienna you might not have visited to entice you outside. As the options for outdoor activities are unfortunately rather limited at the moment, we thought we’d give you some inspiration for beautiful walks to not only get some fresh air, but also soak in the enchanting atmosphere and relax. Because as diverse as these places are, what they have in common is their unique. and sometimes, even magical atmosphere. So follow us on our little tour and explore the loveliest fall walks Vienna has to offer, away from the usual tourist destinations.
