Amid the vineyards of Lower Austria, the country’s most well-known wine region, is a rather unique concept: a spa for wine lovers. Here guests can enjoy the usual benefits of a spa and indulge their love of wine. The ultra-modern building, designed by New York architect Steven Holl, includes spacious rooms, and a first floor that is almost entirely see-through, providing quite the contrast to the more traditional architecture of nearby villages.
The neighboring LOISIUM Vinothek & Kellerwelt (World of Wine) offers opportunities to learn about and taste wines from the Kamptal region, including the 900-year-old cellars. But, guests don’t necessarily just drink the wine. The Aveda spa includes wine in its treatments.

The rolling hills and vineyards around Langenlois, and indeed all of the Wachau Valley, are perfect for cycling and Nordic walking. More wine can be tasted at the Ursin Haus wine bar after trekking through the countryside.
