Take the 38 tram up to Grinzing and then the 38a bus to the very top. Nice little cafe and a restaurant. Polish church at the top too. The place to go for panoramic views over the whole city. We walk down to Nusdorf through the vineyards if the weather is good.

Where Jan Sobieski came with Polish troops and won the Battle of Austria against the Ottomans in 1683. Ottomans then turned back permanently. The Church on the hill (I believe it is dedicated to St. Joseph) to commemorate the Battle in which St. John Paul II prayed at. Also from there is a spectacular view over Vienna.

Located in the Vienna Woods, this is a very popular destination for tourists and locals. It offers a great view on the city and is easily accessible by public transportation or by car, if you don’t like walking.

I am a local and i think this is the worst place to have a nice view. Better walk on the next hill 'leopoldsberg' (15min easy walk) and you will have a stunning 360degrees view not only over vienna. Or if you have more time. Walk down from kahlenberg through the wineyards and enter a local winebar between grapes and... More

This place offers a spectacular panoramic view of Vienna and the surroundings. There is a Polish church and a cafe on top of the mountain.

We kept Kahlenberg for a Sunday since shops would be closed in Vienna on a Sunday (well we didn't go to Vienna for shopping but still did plenty :) ) We took the 38A bus and stopped at the final stop of the bus. It was a very foggy day so we couldn't see the wonderful views from up there.... More

Beautiful view of Vienna, Take the bus from Heiligenstadt, and enjoy the ride, the view. It is worth to visit during the day and early evening.

have some time left and don't know what to do. Tired of shopping, museums or monuments. Take the U4 underground to Heiligenstadt (walk or take a tram to Nussdorf) walk along the danube to Kahlenbergerdorf (Stadtwanderweg 1a) and walk up the path (rather steep and exhausting if not fit) to the church on Leopoldsberg and from there to Kahlenberg, enjoy...

Take the 38 street car from Schottentor to Grinzig ( end station) then the bus up the hill. On a clear day you will have all of Vienna at your feet. There is also a nice Restaurant up there.

You don't need a car.There are frequent bus services up. Lots of Viennese atmosphere with great views over Vienna and the Danube.

Neighborhood Profile
Vienna’s poshest green leafy suburb is also its most romantic hotspot. Walk up Grinzinger Strasse with its many historic wine taverns. The tops of nearby Nussberg and Reisenberg hills make for great strolls through the vineyards, and the occasional discovery of a hidden winery. Popular local weekend hangouts are Neustift am Walde with even more great wine taverns, and café restaurant Cobenzl, up on Cobenzl hill – fantastic for great vistas of Vienna. The woodland around Kahlenberg has a wonderful and not too strenuous hiking path - just don't forget the insect repellent. If you have adventurous children, take them to Waldseilpark Kahlenberg (forest rope park Kahlenberg). A must-do if you want a taste of the Vienna Woods is a stop at Josefinenhütte next door with its great food, cosy interiors and wonderful outdoor space.
