This private day trip from Vienna to Vienna woods is unique. The most spectacular scenery makes this excursion to an unforgettable day tour.

By Minivan we will travel in the direction of Liechtenstein. But don’t fear, it’s only a 30 minute trip from Vienna to Liechtenstein Palace. After a short photo stop, we will drive to the Seegrotte in Hinterbrühl. 

A stupendous natural phenomenon is responsible for the fact that southern Lower Austria is harbouring one of the most spectacular natural monuments of the world today: the "SEEGROTTE" in Hinterbrühl.

In 1912 an underground blasting operation in the gypsum mine "Hinterbrühl" went awry and caused 20 million litres of water to gush forth from behind the rock. The lower level galleries and adits of the mine were flooded, creating the largest subterranean lake in Europe.  During World War II the "SEEGROTTE" was requisitioned by the German military forces. Due to the fact that the subterranean site offered best protection against bombing raids the german "Heinkel Werke" built up an underground aircraft factory inside the far flung tunnels of the "SEEGROTTE". 

Afterwards I will take you through the Heiligenkreuz Monastery which was founded in 1133. "Stift Heiligenkreuz", which means the "Abbey of Heiligenkreuz", is a beautiful and living Cistercian monastery, close to Vienna, the capital of Austria. Stift Heiligenkreuz is the second-oldest Cistercian monastery in the world and the oldest continuously active and inhabited one, now full of young vocations. Be amazed at the breathtaking Romanesque and Gothic periods and hear about the rituals of the monks that still live their today. To conclude I will show you the Hunting Lodge Mayerling, where Crown Prince Rudolf died under mysterious circumstances.

All that in a top class Minivan, with all the luxury service you expect! Your personal tour guide is always around and our maximum flexibility makes this unique tour to an unforgettable trip.

Climate and temperature

Vienna has a mild continental climate. Even if the occasional winter day is icy and some days in high summer can bring sweltering heat to the palaces of the old city, most days of the year the weather matches the residents of the city: friendly, mild and moderate in every respect ...
