Schlögener Donaublick - viewing point and rest spot

Haibach ob der Donau, Oberösterreich, Österreich
  • All weather

The "natural wonder", the Schlögener Schlinge - the perfect prospect for relaxation, peace and enjoyment.

The Danube Valley presents an extremely attractive picture, and its highlight is probably to be found at the Schlögene Schlinge, where the power and beauty of Nature is clearly evident. Waterways have been crucial for humankind since time immemorial, and the Danube continues to play an important role even today thanks to shipping. A slightly lesser known use of the Danube Valley is wine cultivation. Between 1,000 and 1,300 AD in the Medieval Warm Period, wine-growing was practised in the transverse valleys and the lower areas of Upper Austria. At the altitude of Inzell, on the left slope of the Danube Valley, there was a small-scale vineyard with walls and step connections. Today it is completely overgrown with shrubbery. Wine-growing, however, has now been resumed in Hilkering, near Aschach.
 
High above, amidst the Schlögene Schlinge, towers the so-called Kerschbaumer Schlössl (Cherry Tree Castle) - find out from the eponymous Danube legend how it got its name and what "The Cursed Cherry Stone" has to do with it...
