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,
