We used the Green Route on the hop-on-hop-off bus to go to Kahlenberg for the panoramic views over the city. We left it a bit late in the day unfortunately so didn't have time (nor the weather as it was blowing a gale) to walk...More

I study up in Modul in Kahlenberg and I got to say that the view never gets old. But make sure you go when there is no fog, then I would recommend having a coffee at the cafe there and hiking down to town.

Beautiful view and experience overlooking the city of Vienna. The church, restaurant, and tourist shops are reminder of the stories of this historic place. Its clean, wholesome and peaceful place to stroll, relax and enjoy the countryside of Vienna. Recommended

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 –

No issue if you go by bus up to the hill. If you go by D Tram to the foot of the hill in Nussdorf, I recommend a stroller for the almost 300 highmeter up.

Yes and yes Angela, there are paths that interlink with the road on which the bus runs, so you could walk part of the way and ride if the rest if you want. It's wise to ride up, it's long way down to Grinzing again where you... More
