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

When you have nice wheather, than you can make a small excursion to Kahlenberg. You can take a bus to go the hill. Very nice view on the whole of Vienna. There si a church, to remember an Sobiesky, the Polish general, who won the battle against thr Turks.

A Kahlenberg visit is worth some effort. To get there, you can perfectly take public transport with the bus bringing you to the top of Kahlenberg. Going down, I'd recommend a walk - will take a few hours - and if possible do this at times (weekends) where the many wine farmers are opening their "Heurigen", which are small bars... More

Took the underground to the bus with absolute ease and not much time. The day was a little clouded so the view could have been more spectacular however, it did provide an amazing perspective of Vienna and the surrounding districts with visible landmarks which were fun to pick out. Took a hike down the hill through some forest, vineyards and... More

The Kahlenberg offers a lovely view of the city and of the vineyards around it. It is a very picturesque view. Also, instead of taking the bus back to the city, we walked down the hill and passed by the vines which was lovely, too bad the vines weren't yet in bloom. I heartily recommend a walk in that area.

The view is very nice from the Kahlenberg. You can go by car or by bus, if you are in Vienne with children or you are staying here more weeks, use out these opportunity to go there. But for short staying, it would not be among the best sightseeing attractions.

If you have bought a 24 hour transport ticket (which you should because they are good value) you can use it to get out of the city and up into the mountains for a lovely view of the city and to experience some of the local scenery. The tourist information centre opposite the Albertina Museum will give you exact instructions... More

Do not try to get there if you are a sourpuss person as it takes a long ride. Also shopping tourists keep yourself away from here. For others a stunning view of Vienna and Danube is waiting for you on the terrace of its tiny cafe.

Great place to get the bus too and then to walk down the hillside next to the vineyards. Gives beautiful views over Vienna and the Danube.

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.
