A fall day in the Wachau

We had planned to spend the full weekend in Krems, but when the weather turned sunny it was time to get out of town. Because that’s the charm of the Wachau, it’s full of vineyards and apricot trees. And especially the vineyards are pretty all year long.

If you are wondering how we picked Unterloiben, that’s due to the Restaurant Loibnerhof-Knoll. To be honest, we just wanted to pick up some appetite before heading for a late lunch. That’s why we strolled around the countryside for a bit. The restaurant had a facade full of grapevine. It looked very inviting, but we decided nonetheless on a walk before lunch.

The blue sky and the colorful leaves of fall made for a sharp contrast.

The next house we passed had almost a Mediterranean flair with its large courtyard and many oleander plants.

Rounding another bend in the road I walked behind the others to take in the last of the flowers still in bloom.

Unterloiben is only one small village in the Wachau. Still, it’s part of the UNESCO World Heritage Trail and you should definitely take your time while in the area. Unterloiben might not be on everyone’s list, but the restaurant should be. It’s always nice to come back to the area, last time I followed in the footsteps of Richard Lionheart. Yours, Pollybert
