  • An amazing view of Vienna from the top of Khalenberg. 2 cafes are there and both have a lovely view of the city. The sight is incredible
  • Go here! A bus goes all the way up and all of Vienna is visible with the Danube River snaking into the distance. The Café at the top is a bit rubbish but acceptable. Bring binoculars if you have a pair!
  • Breathtaking day or Night. Extremely Romantic site. Thinking of someone dear to my heart
  • Good food and an excellent view of the city. A bit expensive though.
  • Amazing place with great history when Europe got saved from the evil.
