What to see in Spitz

Nestled along the banks of the Danube River in Austria's picturesque Wachau Valley, Spitz is a charming village renowned for its vineyards, historic buildings and stunning natural scenery. Explore quaint streets lined with traditional houses, sample fine wines at local wineries and soak up the idyllic ambience of this riverside gem.

Spitz is synonymous with wine, and a visit to this idyllic village would be incomplete without exploring its verdant vineyards and sampling its renowned wines. Embark on a leisurely stroll through the terraced vineyards that carpet the hillsides surrounding the village, where rows of grapevines bask in the warm Austrian sun and produce some of the finest wines in the region. Join a guided wine tour or cellar visit at one of Spitz's prestigious wineries, where you can learn about the winemaking process, from grape cultivation and harvesting to fermentation and ageing. Meet passionate winemakers who are dedicated to crafting high-quality wines that reflect the unique terroir of the Wachau Valley, and taste a variety of varietals, including Grüner Veltliner, Riesling and Zweigelt.

Spitz boasts a wealth of historic landmarks and cultural sites that offer glimpses into its storied past and vibrant heritage. Begin your exploration with a visit to the medieval Spitz Castle, a striking fortress perched atop a hill overlooking the village and the Danube River. Marvel at its imposing towers, fortified walls and well-preserved architecture, and enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. Wander through Spitz's charming Old Town, where you'll find a treasure trove of historic buildings, quaint squares and cobblestone streets lined with traditional houses adorned with colourful flowers. Admire architectural gems such as the Gothic parish church of St. Maurice, with its elegant spire and ornate interior, and the Baroque-style town hall, which serves as a testament to Spitz's rich cultural heritage.

No cruise to Spitz would be complete without savouring the delectable flavours of Austrian cuisine and indulging in local culinary delights. Head to one of the village's cosy taverns or traditional Heuriger wine taverns, where you can enjoy hearty dishes made with fresh, locally sourced ingredients and paired with exquisite wines from the region. Sample regional specialities such as Tafelspitz (boiled beef with horseradish), Wiener Schnitzel (breaded veal cutlet) and Kaiserschmarrn (fluffy shredded pancakes), accompanied by crisp salads, warm bread and flavorful sauces. Don't forget to save room for dessert and treat yourself to a slice of Sachertorte (chocolate cake) or Apfelstrudel (apple strudel) served with vanilla sauce.
