If you want to see the city of Vienna from above, you have to go up to Kahlenberg. It is amazing at day and at night too.

For someone from Poland is obligatory. However, it should be for everyone visiting Vienna. The views themselves are really amazing. If you have more time, try to have a walk down back to the suburbs of Vienna.

Go up there with the bus 38A from U4 Subway station Heiligenstadt. On a clear day of course. The most beautiful pictures can be made from Khalenberg looking down unto the Danube and the city highlights.

My eyes felt quite pleasant when I went on the peak. So windy peak, beautifull forest and the sunny weather. a few minutes of walking around made me so relaxed.

It is a bit far from the city centre but definitely worth a visit during a sunny day. It is a hill, from which Jan III Sobieski of Poland led his attack on Turks during the second siege of Vienna saving the city - hence, the Polish church on the top. The platforms give a great view over the entire... More

Was driven up here by our local guide, who insisted on showing off the views - there was a very ample car park, an old church, a restaurant or two and some snack/souvenir stands, but the view is the main thing. Sadly on our visit it was pretty foggy, but still got in some impressive glimpses. Worth the trip if... More

Take the Ubahn 4 to Heiligenstadt and then catch bus 38A. After an amazing trip up the hills overlooking Vienna you will get off in Kahlenberg. There is a large viewing area and the cafe there serves excellent snacks at a reasonable price.

We took a visit to the Kahlenberg travelling bu U4 and the bus no 38A. Splendid view of the Vienna city and Daneube river. The coffee shop serves good coffee and snacks.

Kahlenberg is a hill located in the 19th district (Döbling) and offers stunning views over the entire city. There are two terraces: one at a small church and one at a restaurant. Kahlenberg is recommended for a day-trip from Vienna.

Neighbourhood 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.
