A Sea of Poppy at Mohndorf
Summer transforms the small village of Armschlag into one fantastic artwork made out of vivid patches of red, lilac and white. The natural wonders responsible are the soft fields of poppy that have made this particular piece of Lower Austria famous. So-called Mohndorf has even patented its own grey poppy seed, which it uses to make products ranging from chocolate, to oil and cosmetics. You can experience this spectacle by simply walking through the fields, or by taking a horse-drawn carriage. An absolute must on your visit is trying the poppy seed Strudl, which you can enjoy at the poppy restaurant.
