Sankt Anton an der Jessnitz is a small town in Niederösterreich, which is the most northeastern state of Austria. The state is split into four regions that describe their cultural characteristic. Three of them are the Waldviertel, the Weinviertel and the Industrieviertel. St. Anton is located in the fourth and southwestern quarter called the Mostviertel. Most, or Must in proper English, is a form of freshly pressed fruit juice. In the Mostviertel it is mostly made of Apples and Pears. In the last couple of years the region is developing it’s Must heritage as a tourist destination. The tourist bureau has set out an activity trail across the region called the Moststrasse. It connects hikingtrails, cycling routes, farms, orchards and other processing companies that can be viewed by the public. The best time to visit is in the spring when the fruit trees blossom or in the fall when the harvest takes place.
In the Mostviertel are many well preserved abbeys. Some examples are Lilienfeld, Seitensetten and Gaming. But the most famous is by far the abbey at Melk. This enormous complex build on a hill overlooking the Donau is one of the landmarks of Austria. The current version of the Abbey was build in a wealthy barock style in the beginning of the 18th century. It is also a world heritage site. Many tourists from northwestern Europe visit Melk on their way to Vienna. From St. Anton it is 45 kilometres to Melk and over 100 to Vienna, the closest city.
For those who are less interested in mans creations and prefer those of Mother Nature, Sankt Anton an der Jessnitz has everything to offer. It is situated in the Eisenwurzen, part of the limestone pre-Alps. Within just a few kilometres however the forested hills turn into a massive mountainrange called the Ötscher. The whole northern part of the mountain including the territory of St. Anton is protected in the Ötscher-Tormäuer Naturepark. It encompasses the upper part of the Erlauf river. The river and its tributaries have cut spectacular gorges in the landscape and more than once pass into deep waterfalls. Highlight of the park is the “Grand-Canyon of Austria” also known by its actual name the Ötschergraben.
