  • Look great! Climb directly on the pad can be both by car (free parking), and bus 38 a. In the morning on weekdays, little people. The Café opens at 11.00.

  • Stunning views of Vienna and beyond. Hard to capture on film though. Well worth a drive up to Vienna Woods to explore. Very touristy place.  more »
  • By bus it takes some time, but it is worth it. On the site of the famous church, Café (crowded) and magnificent views. Dużooo people. I recommend to take the bus 2 bus stops next to the Leopoldsbergu (3rd bus there runs)-peace peace, little people and better views (m.in. on the Western side), and back off on Grinzingu (very atmospheric suburban subdivision with Gemutlichkaitem;-))

Where to stay in Vienna

As a former imperial capital, Vienna is full of lavish hotels reminiscent of the city’s royal past. If you’re traveling on a budget, it’s not hard to find hotels for a more affordable price. Consider staying in the Innere Stadt, or First District, if you only have a short time in town, as you’ll be within easy walking distance to many of the city’s main tourist attractions. Outside of the central core, Leopoldstadt, or Second District, lines the Danube and offers peaceful walks through tree-lined paths. For shopaholics, Mariahilf, or Sixth District, is a central neighborhood with busy shopping streets and lively markets.
