With less than 500 m above sea level, Vienna is seen "as the palm of your hand." It is a favorite resort from which you can create beautiful photos at the same time and enjoy some of the sports or sit down and have lunch at a nearby restaurant. It is easily reached on foot, by bus or simply drive.... More

Visited the Kahlenberg in december, I found the view from the Kahlenberg absolutely amazing. There is also a very nice small church, and if you want you can have a drink at the restaurant at the Kahlenberg. Do know that the Kahlenberg only provides a view over the citycentre of Vienna. I strongly recommend going to the Leopoldsberg first (you... More

Its a nice spot to have a view of Vienna and the Danube, but there is nothing else to do. There is a little church, a restaurant, a little cafe and that's about it. The thing we enjoy the most is the walk down hill in the wood and the lovely vineyards to Grinzing where you can have some good... More

While you are in Vienna it's a good idea to take the time to go to Kahlenberg. It's a foothill of the Alps and the woods are spectacular. It's a great place for some light hiking and cycling. There are lovely vineyards there, where you can enjoy some good traditional local food and good wine. There's also a sweet public... More

Who would think that just a few kilometers outside of downtown Vienna that one would be looking at vineyards and farm fields. The view from Kahlenberg is spectacular, overlooking the old Vienna and the new Vienna separated by the Danube. You can get a bite to eat here, buy some souvenirs or go for a walk. While the little church... More

We got there via the green line of the hop-on hop-off bus. The route went via the streets of the charming little town of Grinzing, then winding up the mountain through the woods to the very peak. Here you can go to a viewing terrace where it is just the most stunning panoramic view of the vineyards and meadows out... More

Unless you're into hiking some steep trails through the Vienna Woods, this place is good for an hour or so to view the panorama, have a quick bite and explore the immediate area. The unspectacular church is hardly worth the time. Don't get me wrong. The view of the city and the local hills from this vantage point is wonderful.... More
