This charming town was delightful to walk through, is surrounded by beautiful vineyards and has the bragging rights to some pretty incredible wines.
Museums and Sights
This museum was the biggest surprise of our trip! We thought a wine museum couldn’t be informative and fun, that you really just go for the tasting at the end. We were so wrong. The Loisium museum is very informative about process and history, has a variety of interactive opportunities and filled with beautiful artwork, design, mindblowing installations and even a water show! Of course the tasting at the end is a pretty nice way to end a museum visit.
Food and Drink
We had dinner here, which included very good soups, salads and wine. However, the best part about this restaurant is the breakfast (you probably need to be staying at the hotel to get it). It is the kind of European breakfast buffet you dream of, Stephanie still wakes up dreaming about it. It literally had everything you could want and more: beautiful austrian breads, soft stinky cheeses, smoked fish, cured meats, omelets, homemade jams, delicate honeycomb, pretty pastries, etc. The bread really is so delicious there, it is almost worth a hop over the pond.
This place was sooooo charming and our server was incredibly accommodating. We ate Austrian meats and comfort dishes complimented by fantastic local wine. It was the perfect end to a delightful day in Langenlois. The heuriger (wine-tavern) really is a genius concept.
Rathauscafé was a sweet little cafe where locals go for a nice cup of coffee, pleasant conversation and very good pastries. They had the most flavorful and moist cake we ate while in Austria.
When at Loisium Wine Spa Resort, we kept on thinking how very lucky we were to be staying in such a beautiful hotel in such a gorgeous part of the world. The design of the hotel is really spectacular and there are thoughtful details everywhere you look. Then you step outside and see the pool with stunning vineyards as a backdrop. It is ridiculously fantastic. If we could spend one week relaxing anywhere in the world this would be at the top of the list.
