Riverwalk 2018 Report: Exploration Kamp River

Tim Pauli, this year’s Riverwalk organizer, had this to report on his exploration journey to the site of the 2018 Riverwalk!

Recently, three friends and I went hiking, following the Kamp River from Rosenburg to Krumau. We saw the hydroelectric power station in Rosenburg that EVN wants to expand. Further up river there were quite a few ups and downs:

  • Down – next to the river we found traces of some beavers late night picnic – the sap was still coming from the trees.
  • Up – we had a magnificent view of the Kamp valley: the meandering river and castles adorning the hills – inspiring one’s fantasy of ancient times.

On the second day after a refreshing swim in the Thurnberger Stausee the group divided.  My friends headed back home, and I rushed along the trail to follow the Kamp from Krumau to Rastenfeld to catch a bus.

In the evening, I returned to Rosenburg and slept over in the woods.
The next morning, I took my bicycle, which I had left in Rosenburg on the first day and cycled down river. I crossed beautiful cultural landscapes, little villages, vineyards and more castles.  Impressive!

In Hadersdorf am Kamp, I got on a train and returned to Vienna.

It was a beautiful trip – and gave me some good impressions of the area and even more motivation for continuing the planing process.  It’s going to be a great trip!

River Walk 2018 – Exploring the Kamp surrounded by charming Waldviertler cultural landscape and occasionally tracks of wild nature 😉

– Happy trails,

Tim
