VIENNA, WACHAU VALLEY, HOHE WAND, STEINWANDKLAMM GORGE AND MYRAFÄLLE WATERFALLS
What I particularly love about Austria is its exceptional combination of beautiful natural, historical, and cultural sights. I regularly visit Vienna: its historic centre, the Hofburg, and Schönbrunn. I always include a stop at the Hundertwasser Village, the neighbourhood by Friedensreich Hunderwasser, who was not only an extraordinary architect, but also an avid environmentalist whose ancestors happened to come from Brno in Czechia.
Of all the different places in Austria, my absolute favourite is the Wachau Valley (UNESCO). The towns of Krems or Melk, with an impressive Benedictine monastery towering on a rock above the Danube, are definitely worth a visit. A boat trip on the Danube, which leads you through the Wachau Valley, and wine tasting at local wineries are the proverbial icing on the cake. The beautiful views of the vineyards and the many fortresses, monasteries, and castle ruins will leave you in awe. In one of them, Dürnstein, King Richard the Lionheart was imprisoned.
I also organise hiking trips, namely to the Steinwandklamm (Stone Gorge) and the Myraffälle waterfalls – two charming locations where I usually take the most beautiful photos of the whole year. On top of that, I plan to explore other places in Austria to fully use the potential of the guiding licence that I managed to obtain for this wonderful country.
