See where Riesling and Veltliner grapes grow, and take a sip of their bounties. Beethoven spent his summers in Vienna’s wine region while he was working on his 2nd Symphony, the Eroica, the Pastorale and his famous 9th. On the advice of his doctor, he lived in Heiligenstadt in the latter half of 1802 in an attempt to come to terms with his loss of hearing. While there he wrote his Heiligenstadt Testament, recording his resolution to continue living for - and through - his art. You will see 3 of his summer domiciles, and go to a typical winegrower’s cottage. Depending on the season and weather, plan for a 2-hour walk across hilly terrain, interrupted with a short wine tasting tour. Visit Beethoven’s Heiligenstadt cottage, and end at one of the best Heurigen (wine taverns) in town for an authentic and informal Vintager's dinner (dinner not included).

fast, comfortable means of transport for a first approach to the city, which then allows you to explore a particular site

It's always great to learn more about a city this way and to get a lot of impressions in a short time.

Great tour, unfortunately you always have to wait 1 hour for the next bus. This loses a lot of time

I liked the presentation and the music - Strauss, Vivaldi, Mozart.

The pick-up point was excellent and near our lodging.
