It is a little to far from the Downtown area, if you seen everything in Vienna it is a nice trip to the hill side in Vienna

My Hungarian friend who happened to live in Vienna took me here on Saturday. This is a great weekend activity. The one hour hike from the city is worth the trip. Once you get up to the top you can see the 360 degree view of Vienna. The Kahlenberg lies in the Vienna Woods and is one of the most... More

The hike to Kahlenberg is one of the "City hiking paths" of Vienna. The complete path is advertised with ~11km. Mostly you will be hiking on streets, very few parts in the woods. The path passes several vinyards and places where you can have a glass of wine. The view over Vienna you get from the top is simply amazing... More

Kahlenberg - perhaps the most magnificent place to enjoy a nice melange with great views of Vienna. Kahlenberg is located just outside Vienna, but the hill is easily reached by bus 38A which you can take from Grinzing or the last station of the metro line 4 (Green) - Hayligenshtad. Up the hill you will find yourself in nature, a... More

We left our rental car down on the street by the river (drove there for 20min from the city center) and then walked the all way up to the church. That was steep and exhausting! But at the same time we had a really cool view on Vienna, passed several wine yards and little places to actually have a glas... More

You can dribe by bike up to Kahlenberg! You will be rewarded by an amazing view over Vienna and a terrace to chill!

Taking the Underground #4 to the "heiliegenstadt" (end of the line) and then the 38A bus to Kahlenberg is so simple and enjoyable to do and to get a great panoramic view of Vienna. We decided to have some ice cream and cold drinks at the restuarant overlooking the vineyards and the city. Great photo opp. We decided to walk... More

I went to Kahlenberg with a friend who recommended we take the scenic route. The walking trail leads you past a number of local vineyards set on rolling hills, making the view quite picturesque. It was a hot day and the walk up was difficult at times, but only because we decided to take a shortcut which turned out to... More

Just came back from a wonderful adventure evening. First to Kahlenberg to see the view and then dinner at a local place in Grinzing. What fun. So proud we did it all by train and bus. So easy to get around Take U 4 train to the end Helgenstadt and then the 38 A bus to the end. After seeing... More

We enjoyed hiking through the town of Nussdorf and up, up, through the vineyards. Great view over Vienna. We were given good directions by a young woman at the central tourist information and took public transportation all the way, using our passes. Tip: don't plan on eating at the top, instead stop in the meadow where a Nussdorf firm is... More

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.
