Turn-by-turn directions

The Weinviertel DAC wine tour sets off from the Retz’s historic town square. It passes the landmark Retz windmill bound for Pulkau via Waitzendorf, taking in vineyard-lined hills all the way. Next, it is off to Röschitz and Roseldorf and then Platt and Zellerndorf before cycling back to the wine city Retz via Pillersdorf.
