Hiking can be done in many locations as near as in Sierning/ Haunolsstein towards the Caste of the Count of Montekukuli. Other options are short walks (45 min) from the Donau 30 Km to Schloss Aggstein and Duernstein.
The Hohe Schule was built in 1574 by the count of Losenstein, owner of the nearby Schallaburg castle. The building has authentic arches and wooden windows shutters.
It was the first Lutheran high school in Central Europe and famous for the relatively modern school regulations ('Schulordnung' ) which has been researched by the University of Vienna, where also the original document is kept.
Einen Aufenthalt in der Hohen Schule Loosdorf kann man uneingeschränkt weiter empfehlen. Das ganze Gebäude atmet Geschichte, schon alleine dies ist eine Reise wert. Die Lage ist optimal mitten im Ort, leider von der Straße her manchmal etwas laut. Nachts aber hat man seine Ruhe. Sehr freundliche Vermieter die sich rührend kümmern. Vom fußläufig erreichbaren Bahnhof ist man in einer Stunde in Wien, abgesehen von den vielen lohnenden Zielen in der näheren Umgebung. Natürlich ist ein Auto hilfreich. Mit dem ist man in wenigen Minuten im Donautal mit den vielen Weinorten.
Ein Tip - den Schnitzaltar in der Kirche zu Mauer sollte man UNBEDINGT ansehen - der lohnt sich mehr als so manches ausgelobte Ziel.
Wir überlegen sehr, ob wir diese wunderbare Gegend bald wieder besuchen.
