Peaceful - untouched - secure
The Waldviertel is unobtrusive. The Waldviertel is peaceful. Sometimes lonely, sometimes smooth, sometimes raw.
The Waldviertel breathes peaceful energy and reconciliation. This Nordic clarity is unique!
"Where we are is up in the north". The locals pronounce this with a twinkle of the eye and are referring to the north of Lower Austria, up in the highland, where air as much as feelings still remain unspoiled.
But what is it really that makes this piece on earth so attractive for many people?
Probably it's because everybody finds something unique for the pursuit of his or her individual happiness. The peace of this landscape is a treasure, which even has something to say when it pretends to be quiet. There are so many that appreciate the very vastness of this archaic world with its thousands of ponds and upland moors as well as their "hikeable" ridges. Innumerable possibilites offer themselves to visitors to discover the almost untouched nature "per pedes" and at the same time learn something interesting about the people and their country.
Unknowingly, the Waldviertel causes the most different moods in its people. It's the Nordic clarity in its unparalleled quality that really is unique here. It is quiet, untouched, secure, curious, utterly fresh, pure, archaic, forceful or conciliatory. Just as you prefer it.
