Special winegrowers, special wines
Walk of Wine - Your wine experience in Stegersbach
You can explore the winegrowing region of south Burgenland in more detail with a walk around the thermal spa and hotel facilities on offer in Stegersbach. Information panels and vines along the short circular trail reveal more about the best winegrowers in the south Burgenland winegrowing region as well as their work and the various grape varieties on offer. The route sets off straight from the doorstep of the Larimar holiday resort.
Get to know the winegrowers
The Walk of Wine in Stegersbach brings together two beautiful features: dreamy panoramic views across the wide-ranging hilly landscapes accompany you throughout the circular walk and there are lots of adventure gardens dotted along the route which invite guests to look and nibble. In these gardens, 26 winegrowers have planted rows of 5 vines each per vineyard. Visitors are invited to explore the vines and get to know more about the local winegrowers. Display panels provide information about the individual philosophies of the vineyards.
Stop for a break in one of the many rest areas and enjoy a snack or savour the magical views of south Burgenland.
Several times a year, guests can take part in winegrowing soirées where selected winegrowers present samples from their wine cellars. These enjoyable evenings are accompanied by wind or jazz music.
The idyllic winegrowing region of south Burgenland is the smallest winegrowing region in Austria but has secured itself a remarkable reputation which extends far beyond the borders with its authenticity and regional specialities.
Well-being, wine and golf
The Walk of Wine was launched by the ‘Well-being, Wine & Golf’ cooperation initiative. These three components define the appeal of the Stegersbach region which impresses guests from near and far. The area is home to Austria’s biggest and probably most beautiful golf course as well as internationally renowned wines and winegrowers and well-being in all its forms. The Larimar thermal spa hotel offers lots of interesting packages covering all of these themes.
Yet more wine in all its facets can be discovered in the numerous vinotheques, wine taverns and cellars and in the wine museum and wine archive. Visitors will find plenty of delicious regional treats, liquid temptations and friendly innkeepers here to while away a cosy few hours.
