The Gutenstein alps with their iconic John's Creek Canyon (Johannesbachklamm) are located only 1.5 hours South of Vienna. You definitely should have been there at least once. It's like visiting a mini-version of Switzerland, complete with grazing cows and snow-covered ridges afar.
Conveniently starting and ending at Vienna Main Station/Wien Hauptbahnhof, this tour comes packed with with spectacular impressions of canyon rocks, mountain meadows and idyllic forests. If quiet enough, we might even spot some free-roaming wildlife in the woods. Net hiking time through all these eye candies will be 3 hours.
Underway we'll have fun with ice breakers, discussion prompts and local trivia.
