The southern Vienna Woods can easily be visited in half a day: You shouldn’t miss the Cistercian Abbey Heiligenkreuz on this excursion.

Neither is the inconspicuous Mayerling Hunting Lodge, which attracts visitors from all over the world with its mysterious story about the death of Crown Prince Rudolf.

The tranquil spa town of Baden (20 km south of Vienna) invites you to take a detour with its sulphurous springs, casino and racecourse.

For this tour a coach must be hired.
Duration: from 4 hours
Admittance costs not included.
