The Pulkau valley
Lower Austria wants to become Cycling Country and in the next five years wants to double the amount of cycling traffic from 7% to 14%. The Pulkau valley is already a cycling paradise in the free time: the fertile landscape is beautiful and offers changing vistas, it is neither murderously steep nor boringly flat, and it is punctuated with culturally interesting and culinary tempting stations. Hardly any cars can be found along the cellar lanes, narrow paths and vehicle tracks. Furthermore since 1998 over 1.600 kilometres of cycle path have been established. Vintner Gisela Bauer takes care to give you (wine) route tips, maps and an extraordinarily good picnic basket to keep your strength up.
Enjoying a well- chosen wine in a proper ambiance with good company and with some tasty bites… this still has a lot to do with what a person from the Weinviertel would call wellness. Now, since the opening of the thermal baths Spa Thaya, the region has something else to offer which falls into this category. There are also open-air baths in Haugsdorf, Seefeld-Kadolz and Retz. A secret tip, 35 kilometres away in Langau there is a brown coal lake for bathing.
