Scenic diversity

From hill country to mountains: Lower Austria is unmatched in its diversity of landscapes.

Austria’s largest province is also the province with the biggest diversity of landscapes and the biggest range of unusual venues.

Lower Austria is a land of contrasts. It has riparian forests and dry steppes, alpine meadows and fjord-like lakes, narrow mountain gorges and sweeping hill country, quaint river valleys and mysterious moors. The province that surrounds the venerable imperial city of Vienna has a diversity of landscapes not to be found anywhere else in Central Europe. No matter what backdrop you want for your event, you are sure to find it in Lower Austria.

The Waldviertel is appreciated for the beauty of its rugged landscapes and the Weinviertel for its lovely vineyard-covered hills. Both regions offer you a host of meeting venues that are tranquil as well as reenergizing. The mountainous Mostviertel and Vienna Alps have ideal spots for stimulating incentive events, summer and winter. Along the Danube and in the Vienna Woods, the wonderful contrast of superb cultural treasures and untouched nature offers you settings that are as impressive as they are fascinating.

Speaking of settings, the diversity of landscapes also opens up an incredible variety of action-packed activities for social programs. If action and enthusiasm are what you want for your event, Lower Austria is the place for you: more than 40 golf courses, a number of appealing winter sports regions, a close-knit system of hiking and cycling routes, tons of MTB trails, climbing crags, handcar rides, canoe trips, waterskiing, rafting, canyoning…
