Title :
Bärlauch Hike
Date :
Sun 25.03.2018
Type of event :
Hike, 1 day
Organized by :
James Neuhaus
Description :

A  hike into the Wienerwald to celebrate the arrival of spring (hopefully...).  

From the main square in Perchtoldsdorf, we will walk into the Foehrenberg Nature Park up to the Gasthaus Kugelwiese and stop for a snack/lunch. Then we'll walk along the old Lichtenstein road on the ridge. Somewhere along here, we'll find a nice patch of bärlauch for picking.

We'll continue to the Josefswarte with its excellent views of the Danube Valley and Vienna.  From here we'll walk back to Perchtoldsdorf.
