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.

The "mountain" Kahlenberg has a little chapel, a hotel and a university at the top. The view is breathtaking. You can see all over Vienna. From the international to the historic city centre. There's a nice little cafe where you can have a coffee while enjoying the view. The only way to get up there though is by bus 38a,... More

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

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.
