Day trips around Vienna

Jump to last reply

We're going to Vienna for 6 days at the beginning of September (active 60+). As well as the usual sites, we also are planning on 2 day trips. We'll be doing the trip to Melk and Krems by train and boat. I can't decide what to do for the second trip. I discounted Bratislava because we don't want an urban trip. We also want to travel an hour or less each way.
I've read about the Vienna Woods and villages. Some other possibilities that I found are the Klosterneuburg Monastery, Grinzing and the area, Leopoldsberg and Kahlenberg. We wouldn't mind doing some short, easy trails in the Woods as well as visiting a village.
I also read that there is an event called Genussmeile that will be taking place the weekend that we're going to be there. However, every site I opened was only in German so I'm not sure what actually happens (except that it's connected to wine which is something we enjoy!)
We also want to go to a heurige. I understand that there are many in the Grinzing area.
Could anyone suggest an itinerary for a half day trip ? We'll be taking public transportation only.
Thanks.
