Road Tripping in Style

Grand Ferdinand guests can rent a Maserati Quattroporte GT S for their day trip in or around Vienna

Both the sleek chassis and the Italian leather and Alcantara interior of the Maserati Quattroporte GT S are already pretty impressive. It’s no wonder most people are hopelessly captivated by Maserati’s flagship saloon car once the energetic purr of the 440 horsepower motor comes to life.

Fortunately, experiencing this powerful car first-hand is no longer a mere dream for those staying at the Grand Ferdinand. Hotel guests can rent the sleek and sporty sedan, which fits four people, for day trips in and around Vienna.

Sporty but luxurious

The first Maserati Quattroporte was created in 1963. It wasn’t just the fastest four-seater car in the world, but also the beginning of a brand new car category. The Maserati Quattroporte was the first luxury sports saloon ever.

The Italian name “quattroporte” means “four doors”. Squeezing into the back seat is, fortunately, a thing of the past — the Quattroporte allows four people to zip around comfortably. Sporty and comfortable don’t have to be polar opposites anymore.

A day trip to the Wachau Valley

There are many great destinations for day trips around Vienna. One of the most beautiful areas to check out is the Wachau Valley along the Danube. The area in Lower Austria is said to be one of the most stunning river valleys in Europe. It’s no accident that the “Wachau Cultural Landscape” is one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

The Wachau is popular among hikers, as well as one of Austria’s best wine regions. It also has 20 castles and castle ruins, as well as three monasteries, offering plenty of things to explore for visitors.

“Wachauer Marillen”: These apricots are famous!

20 castles are a lot to choose from, so here’s a preselection. The castle ruins in Dürnstein were made famous in the myth of Richard the Lionheart. The Benedictine monastery Melk Abbey is the cultural landmark of the Wachau Valley.

The castle Schallaburg features outstanding exhibitions of a different theme every year. Burgruine Aggstein, on the other hand, is one of Austria’s most famous medieval castle ruins.

Cultural attractions aren’t the only draw of the Wachau Valley. The Wachau isn’t just an excellent wine region, but famous for its apricots as well. The “Wachauer Marillen” (“Marille” being the Austrian word for apricot) are renowned and even trademarked within the EU.

And thanks to the Danube there is plenty of water fun to be had in the Wachau Valley as well. There are numerous beaches along the bank of the Danube and the river’s idyllic anabranches.

The journey is the reward

The motorway or “Autobahn” will take you to the Wachau quickly and directly. Simply take the A22 to Dürnstein or the A1 to Melk. However, if you’d prefer to drive more leisurely and see more of the scenery, stick to the “Bundesstraße”, the smaller federal highways in Austria. From Vienna, take the B1 towards Melk and enjoy the views.

Of course, the Wachau Valley is only one of many destinations you can pick for your Maserati day trip.
