This view over the city of Vienna is nice, but not worth a special trip, I think. We did this on the Vienna Sightseeing Hop On Hop Off bus, so it didn't cost us anything extra. But if I had paid to see this, I would have been very disappointed.

There's a hotel selling hotel priced food and drink with some excellent views of the Danube and surrounding area from the terrace. Also there's a nice memorial church - see photos. TIP - if you walk along to the end of the hotel complex and have a look over the small railed off area there are possibly the best elevated... More

Kahlenberg is on the mountains near Vienna. The Bus tours take you there. There are many paths in the mountains. The view from Kahlenberg of Vienna is outstanding. The whole city can be seen from there.

Kahlenberg is one my favourite excursion destination around Vienna. The Kahlenberg is a hill (484 m or 1,588 ft) located in the 19th District of Vienna (Döbling) and in the Vienna Woods of Austria. It offers stunning panoramic view of the entire Vienna city and Danube river. On clear days, one can not only see the entire city from above,... More

Definitely worth visiting! It is far from the city center but it allows you to have a view of the whole city!

The Kahlenberg is located in the Vienna Woods and is one of the most popular excursion destinations - may be because of the stunning view afforded by the Kahlenberg: on clear days you can see the entire city from above. Just amazing!

This was my third visit to Vienna, but the first time visiting Kahlenberg. If I'm in Vienna again, and the weather is nice, this will definitely get another visit. As others have said, it's easily accessible by public transit (check their reviews for details), and the bus trip up is part of the fun as there are views along the... More

Although getting there is kind of hard (use the bus 38A) and long, it is totally worth it. Once you're up there, you have a view over the entire city, a nice self service café and peaceful routes to go on a walk.

Just a bus ride from the end of the U4 at Heiligenstadt on the 38A, Kahlenberg is well worth the trip. It's a fun bus ride up into the hills along windy roads with hairpin bends! The panoramic views are second-to-none. There are a couple of places for something to eat and drink and there is also a hotel.

This is a hill top in Vienna, accessible by public transport which gives you amazing views of the entire city and the Danube. We went there by car - both in the night and during the day and had views of Vienna by "night and day". The night view was amazing although it was difficult to recognize the places -... More

Staying in Dobling

Neighborhood Profile
Dobling
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.
