THE MOSTVIERTEL: Mild & Wild

 

The attractive contrast between the mild, fertile fruitland on the Moststrasse in the north and the wild-romantic alpine mountain landscape in the south leads to diversified discovery trips through the mountain and hilly landscapes and invites you to sport or history holidays.

MOST ROAD

 

Through the gentle hilly landscapes, the route runs along pear tree rows, sightseeing cultural monuments and most farms. The Mostbarone are the best producers of pear, cider, fruit juices and sparkling flavors with an amazing variety of flavors. Birnenmoste are something unique in Europe, but there are apple products everywhere. The often unique varietal specialties are surprising with fine taste nuances from pear-mild to fruity-sparkling to strong-tart.
Convince yourself the best.
In addition to the Mostbirnhaus or Bauernmuseum invite to visit monasterie Seitenstetten, the Basilica on the Sonntagsberg and museums. The Mostviertel is also the "cradle" of today's Austria. In the year 996 Emperor Otto III. gave to the Bishop of Freising 1000 acres of land in the neighborhood of Neuhofen / Ybbs. The name "Ostarrichi" appears for the first time on a document, over the years so comes the name Austria.
