About the Region

Lower Austria’s „Mostviertel“ is a truly captivating region. Explore a flourishing, charming hideaway located between Vienna and Salzburg, and between the Danube River and the peak of the Ötscher, almost 2000 metres high! The contrast between the gently rolling, very fertile land to the north and the wild, romantic alpine country in the south is very delightful and gives inspiration for multi-faceted voyages of discovery, family fun vacations and mountainous adventures .
The Mostviertel lies in the western part of Lower Austria, south of the Danube. 407.00 people live in this region. Major towns include Sankt Pölten, the capital of Lower Austria and Amstetten, Scheibbs/Ybbs, Waidhofen /Ybbs and Wieselburg.
The climate is influenced by Atlantic and Pannonian weather systems. Fruit, wine and vegetables grow in abundance in this mild climate in the gently rolling hills of the countryside south of the Danube. You will enjoy pleasantly refreshing summer days in the mountainous region.
Elevations range from 246m in Ardagger, close to the Danube, up to 1893m on the peak of the Ötscher.
