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.

Nice place to see the panorama of Danube, vineyards and Vienna. It's also a good stop for a bite if you want to cycle around the Vienna hills and vineyards. There is a church remembering the victory of Polish King Jan III Sobieski over the turkish army.

Visit here if you want great views of Vienna. Also taking the 38A bus here gives you a good view of the neighbourhood on the way to the top.

A must visit place esp for the city view from the place and more interestingly the Kahlenberg rope park is a must go for all those who love thrill and adventure.

This is a good spot for a city photo. Only stopped off for 5 mins to literally take a few photos then leave. Did this as part of the Green Line on the Vienna Sightseeing bus. However there are a few cafes you could lounge in for a visual lunch! Not the best city to view from a higher point... 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.
