Wachau Valley - Renting a Car and Apricot Blossoms

Jump to last reply

My wife and I will be in Vienna from April 6th through April 11th. We were originally hoping to take a boat cruise down from Melk to Krems, but I heard the boats do not begin service until mid-April. We also thought about taking a bus tour, but we would like to have flexibility and be able to stop along the Wachau Valley as we please. As an alternative, we are thinking of renting a car and spending the day travelling through the valley. We were hoping to see the apricot trees while they are in bloom. Does anyone know the average time of year the trees bloom in this area? Obviously a precise prediction can't be had, but I assume there is a general time period when it happens. Are the trees usually in bloom during the first two weeks of April? We were also thinking of visiting the Vienna Woods as well. Would this be possible to do in one day by car?
