Bernstein Trail – wine and hiking
The new Bernstein Trail combines pleasure and active recreation like hardly any other trail and is intended to position Burgenland as a new hiking destination ©Burgenland Tourismus
When thinking of wine landscapes, the pleasure hiker always thinks of sunny and very pleasant climate. Of pretty wine-growing villages with vinotheques, wine cellars and wine taverns, as well as of harmonious wine-growing landscapes, through whose hilly vineyards one can hike wonderfully. And in the evening, in wine cellars and wine taverns, you can comfortably taste the wines of the winegrowers through whose vineyards you hiked just a few hours ago. Pure pleasure! It is no longer a secret that Burgenland stands for fine wines. The region in southeastern Austria – located between the Alps and the Pannonian Plain – has long since made a name for itself worldwide as a producer of exquisite wines. Even the Romans grew wine in this region, which is known as the cradle of Austrian wine. You can find out more about Burgenland’s winegrowers and winegrowing regions, as well as the exciting topic of “wine & architecture”, for example, here: https://www.burgenland.info/de/aktivitaeten/wein-kulinarik/winzer-weinbau.html
