Hiking along the Perry Road

You can choose from any number of hiking and educational trails to explore the land of perry pear trees in the Mostviertel in Lower Austria.

What all these Perry Road paths and trails have in common is the enchanting countryside through which they take you. You pass stately quadrangular farmsteads and vast meadows sprinkled with gnarled pear trees. These hikes are particularly impressive in April and May when the pear trees are in bloom.
