In spring the area is ablaze with blossoms, in the summer you can enjoy breathtaking sunsets at Lake Neusiedl. When fall comes, there is a magical gleam to the light and the heavily laden vineyards. And the arrival of winter conjures up romantic landscapes of ice.|

From enjoying wine to understanding
One of the highlights on a walking or cycling tour around Jois is the original and carefully designed Educational Wine Trail. Come with us on a short journey about wine, learn interesting facts about the region, the work of winegrowers in days gone by and today at 10 different stations, and also get a short summary about the different types of wine. The different stations are marked by unique - probably worldwide - huge format wineglasses made of specially designed metal. These works of art blend in perfectly with the surrounding landscape and have already become a favorite spot with our visitors for taking photographs. We also periodically offer sociable and informative guided tours along the trails complete with wine tasting.
