Nature is Calling

Rising gracefully above the northern outskirts of Vienna, the forested Alpine foothill of Kahlenberg offers a fine getaway for nature-lovers and view-seekers alike. Even with the red roofs of the city spread out before you, Kahlenberg feels utterly removed from the bustle of modern Vienna. As you explore the numerous hiking trails that wind through the trees, you can stumble upon quaint cottages and chapels, or even a herd of deer. To get here, catch the 38A bus outside of Heiligenstadt metro station (northern terminus of the U4 line) for a scenic ride, or, for some exercise, start in Grinzing village and hike up from the foot of the hill.
