Day.Tourism Dunkelsteinerwald

Natural forests, extensive hiking trails and prized cultural treasures – the Dunkelsteinerwald has a large, to some extent still untapped, potential for people seeking local recreational pursuits. In addition, thousands of day-trippers and holidaymakers, for whom the Dunkelsteiner usually remains just a secret tip, can be found in the zones on the periphery of the Dunkelsteinerwald every year. Browsing through brochures and websites reveals little information about the Dunkelsteinerwald, let alone any actual offers.

Pielach-Mühlau: Consciously experiencing natural treasures

The Pielach-Mühlau conservation area in the municipal district of Hafnerbach is one of nature’s true jewels. The wild river landscape is an area of retreat for many species of animal and vital to their survival. Excursions, campaigns involving schoolchildren and targeted public relations work are intended to create the necessary sensitisation and put the protection of these habitats on a secure and lasting footing.

Raimondosteig - History of the Castle

Digitalisation of the hiking stages of the Dunkelsteinerwald-Runde, Jauerling-Runde and World Heritage Trail

In recent years, the regions of the Wachau and the Dunkelsteinerwald focused on the topic of hiking. Following preparatory work in the Jauerling-Wachau Nature Park (parts of the hiking system there were later emphasised in the so-called Jauerling-Runde), the World Heritage Trail, a 180 kilometre-long, long-distance hiking trail on both banks of the Danube opened in 2010 after an intensive planning phase and became a pioneering project both at home and abroad. Based on the success of the World Heritage Trail, the Dunkelsteinerwald-Runde was planned and implemented in the years that followed and thus complements the overall trail network of 30 stages and probably the biggest non-alpine hiking centre in Central Europe.

Under the direction of Martin Vogg, who was previously responsible for the project Wachau 2010 plus, existing offers should be combined with new ones and wrapped up into bookable packages, starting with the two locations of Maria Langegg and the Aggsbach Charterhouse.

Danube Crossing at Aggsbach: Feasibility

One topic that has preoccupied the region for many years is the lack of a crossing over the Danube between Melk and Spitz near the towns of Aggsbach-Markt and Aggsbach-Dorf. After several unsuccessful attempts to set up a conventional bicycle ferry between them, the two towns are now pursuing an unconventional approach: in the future, they could be connected by a cableway across the Danube.
