Come explore the vineyards and corn fields of Oberlaa, one of Vienna's most underrated areas. After conveniently meeting up at Vienna Main Station (Wien Hauptbahnhof), we'll first cross through the trendy Sonnwendviertel towards Laaer Berg and then walk up to the highest point of Löwygrube. From here you can see, weather permitting, as far as to the Lower Carpathians of Slovakia. After getting lost in the vineyards of nearby Goldberg, we then venture further downhill until reaching the tree-lined Liesing creek between Oberlaa and Unterlaa. Following the waves, we'll leave the official boundaries of Vienna and finally arrive at Kledering village. From there, a quick train ride will take us back to Vienna Main Station.
Underway we'll have fun with ice breakers, discussion prompts and local trivia.
