About Gloggnitz

A small rural village located in a interesting area. Nearby are mountain peaks at around of 2000m. At an hour drive south of Vienna this is region is often visited for day trips and weekend trips. Some example of nice mountains are "Schneeberg" (Snowmountain) and "Rax". Also quite phenomenal is the rail-track "Semmering-bahn". This is officially UNESCO world-heritage. It is a rail track consisting of a series of bridges and tunnels linking Vienna with Trieste (Italy). It is a real landmark in engineering. Especially when you take into account that it was built in the middle of the 19th century. When you are bon-vivant you should visit this region in September. Then Most (young wine) and many other varieties of wine and juice are widely available at pubs, biergartens and heurigen. The mekka of it all is said to be found in Burgenland. This Bundesland (state) borders Hungary and offers one of the sunniest regions of all Austria. Burgenland is not to far away from Gloggnitz and with a completely different landscape you will easily forget you are in an Alpine country!
