4.5
#1 of 6 in Nature in Vienna
Hike and cycle around Kahlenberg, a hill lying in the Vienna Woods and offering views of the entire city. After acquiring it in 1628, Ferdinand II subsequently allowed the construction of a hermitage for an order of Catholic hermits. Explore the nearby church, enjoy a drink and food at the surrounding cafes and restaurants, and tour the neighboring vineyard. This hill can be reached by car or by bus. There is ample parking and public toilets are available for a fee. Using our custom trip planner, Vienna attractions like Kahlenberg can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • 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 »

  • The view of the city is absolutely beautiful! It is a bit far from the city center, but I highly recommend going here.
  • Great view on Vienna. Go up by public bus transport (from Heiligenstadt) or by car or hike (bike = very hard tour on the road). Coffeehouse on the top where you will hardly get a tabl. You can visit the church or walk down to the Theresienwiese (green) with a small Restaurant next to it (God for drinks and snacks).

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.
