Description to Thermenregion

The Austrian wine-growing region is one of the eight in the state Lower Austria and covers 2,196 hectares of vineyards. It was created in 1985 by merging the formerly independent wine-growing areas Gumpoldskirchen and Bad Vöslau, The thermal baths, which were already known in antiquity, gave the area its name, but in the vernacular it is called "Südbahn", after the railway line built here in the middle of the 19th century. The oldest winery in Austria, the Freut Thallern at Gumpoldskirchen was founded in 1141 by the Cistercians founded by the Stift Heiligenkreuz. Since the 13th century, the region has enjoyed the tradition of wine making, and at the time this was called Leitgeben (Leutgeben) called.

Rich wine yields were in the 14th and 15th centuries. In the 16th and 17th centuries, the area was seriously affected by the Turkish siege. The diseased, Turkish Commander in Chief Kara Mustapha (~ 1630-1683) recovered in 1683 in to bathe very quickly. Viticulture suffered the hardest losses because the Turks destroyed many vineyards for religious reasons. In 1760 the Order of Pinot Noir was introduced to this area by the Teutonic Order and began to spread all over the region to the Burgenland spread. The area is part of the Vienna Basin and is one of the warmest wine regions in Austria. Hugo von Hofmannsthal (1847-1929), the creator of Everyman, described it as an "immense garden".

The area stretches from the southern outskirts of Wien along a ridge to the south of the spa town of Baden. A beautiful wine route touches all major wine-growing communities.
