Pear tree blossom season in the Mostviertel region

Lush fruit trees in full bloom form a magnificent backdrop along the so-called "Moststraße"(Perry Road) around mid-April.

In the middle of April, the so-called "Moststraße" (Perry Road) shines in a dress of white blossoms every year. More than one million fruit trees transform the mild northwest of the Mostviertel region into a white sea of flowers for about 2 weeks.

The sight never fails to impress: Everywhere along the 200 kilometres of the "Moststraße", the so-called Perry Road, pear trees are in bloom, adding fragrant white accents all over the gentle hills of the landscape. At this time of the year it is a special pleasure to explore nature and gather impressions either by foot or by bike. More than 300,000 pear trees transform the western Mostviertel region in the time between the middle and end of April in an enchantingly white sea of flowers. The pear tree blossom season is followed by the blossoming of the apple trees which wraps the landscape in a pale pink dress even days after the pear tree blossom.
