Beautiful view!

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

Is made my whole day with walking from Grinzing to Kahlenberg... My music in my ears, backpack, a simple lunch and coffee, and of course drinking water. You can go up with bus very easy from the last station of green line metro U4 which is Heiligenstadt and then use 38A bus to Kahlenberg. I recommend you by foot, it... More

Easy access by public transport and the sightseeing buses. Don't just dash and take a photo then go it's worth waiting and taking in the view and when the sightseeing buses go you are able to get yo the viewing area easier. There is a quick serve cafe and a restaurant. We sat in the restaurant enjoying the world go... More

Accessible by bus from Vienna or Grinzing. Trip up the hill to an incredible viewing area that overlooks Vienna. Beautiful panoramic views. Some cafes at viewing point, which we did not got to. Not a whole lot to do once at the viewing point except look at the view, but it is pretty amazing. (In all fairness, this was a... More

Here's the deal - if you take the bus up to the Kahlenberg stop you will quickly realize that you have not discovered a hidden gem. There are a bunch of souvenir stands and busloads of tourists with selfie-sticks. Nevertheless, it's worth it to walk over to the overlook and grab your token photo with Vienna laid out behind 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.
