If you are looking for a fun way to spend a fall afternoon with the kids, Franzlbauer in Hintersdorf, right outside Vienna, is a great place to visit. Its main draw? Pumpkins, pumpkins, and more pumpkins.
The farm has a display of seemingly hundreds of varieties of pumpkins in its barn, and has bins upon bins of pumpkins and squashes for sale. Hungry? The farm also sells several pumpkin-flavored snacks, such as soup, cake, and beer. There are chickens running free around the farm’s property, which was the highlight of the visit for my children.
The parking lot for the farm’s visitors is across the street, and there is a path leading from the parking lot into the woods. You can make a day of it and take a hike through the woods after visiting the farm: it’s very easy terrain to navigate, even for young children.
