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

Nice spot to get great views of Vienna. Nice coffee shop next to square/viewing terrace. Easy to get to via U4 to Heiligenstade then 38A bus. A few hours out of the city = good value!

We took the D line tram to Nussdorf, having been given a booklet of Vienna walks called 'Wanderbares Wien' at the tourist office in the city centre. Nussdorf is a great location to start a walk up the Kahlenberg hill which is the highest of the hills around Vienna and has vineyards on its slopes. The walk is well signposted... More

This is a great place to see the wonderful city of Vienna from one simple vantage point. Easy to get to. Just take the tram to Grinsing then the 38a bus up the mountain. Great place to relax and have a beer. Then if you are adventurous, you can walk back down the mountain through the vineyards, stopping for a... More
