A la Carte Optional Extras

Romantic Visit to the Viennese Woods

After breakfast your private driver guide will collect you from your hotel for a morning in the wonderfully romantic southern Viennese woods to show you some of the most beautiful sights in the surrounding area of Vienna.

This includes the romantic Helenental valley and the former Mayerling hunting lodge. This is where Crown Prince Rudolf is said to have committed suicide.

You will also visit the impressive Cistercian Abbey of Heiligenkreuz and its medieval cloister which has recently become famous for it’s choir.

In 1912 an underground blasting operation in a mine went wrong causing 20 million litres of water to gush through the rock. The lower level galleries were flooded creating the largest subterranean lake in all of Europe; SeeGrotte. During WW2 SeeGrotte was used by the German military as an aircraft factory as it was protected against bombing raids, and produced the first jetfighter of the world, the HE162; a model of which is on display. Nowadays a romantic motor boat trip of 45mins takes you across the lake.

Please note from 1st Jan – 31 March Mayerling can only be visited on Saturdays and Sundays.
