    Kahlenberg

    by Anya_D Updated Dec 31, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Kahlenberg is a hill norht-west of Vienna (actually, within the city limits now), where in the 17th century the Islamic invasion into Europe was stopped in a severe battle. Great view on Vienna from the hill. In the picture you see a view from Kahlenberg of the western suburbs of Vienna (it must be Klosterneuburg), Vienna is to the left.

    trees of life

    by loewetiger Written Feb 25, 2003

    on kahlenberg, one of the best viewpoints to see vienna at the danube, you can find a celtic circle of life trees, they are still young and you can watch them grow if you come back from time to time. on weekends there is music but not live :-( and sometimes there are feasts like the pumpkinfeast. around in the woods there are beautiful very old trees. the whole area is a field of energy.

    Go to the Prater. If you still have some infantilism somewhere deep inside, you will enjoy the amusement park. If not, at least have a ride on the great ferris wheel and enjoy the panoramic view. But afterwards it is worth just having a walk in the park itself, especially on a hot summer day. You can sit down (or lie down) in the grass, somewhere in the shadow, or have a seat on a terrace of a pub, have a cold beer, and just enjoy life.

    This isn't off the path at all, but I figured I had too many MUST SEE ACTIVITIES for Vienna. This is the site you'll encounter when you go through the Hofburg and out into the huge central complex that branches off to other parts of the city. It's a big square.

    Not really off the beaten path, it was sort of right in the middle of the hofburg complex, but there were a bunch of locals, and tourists laying in the lucious grass the covered these lovely parks. Take a nap, or just lay down in the sun for an hour and relax!

    The central cemetary--Okay, it may not be for everyone, therefore it really is off the beaten path--has a special area for the famous composers, Beethoven, Brahms, Schubert, Strauss, Schubert, etc. -- except Mozart & Mahler. Mahler's grave is located in Grinzing and Mozart's grave is located at St. Marx Friedhof.

    If you come to Vienna in spring time (March) maybe you can steal some hours
    to visit the Lainzer Tiergarten. It's beautiful in the summer season, too, but the
    'Baerlauch', a garlic-flavoured plant, grows there everywhere (collect, eat with
    butter and bread or cook over little water)(take a private local guide with you to
    identify the green stuff).

    Visit the 'Prater'. This is an old amusement park from the beginning of this century. Although it's very old and not well reserved it's nice to visit. Because of this, it's very nostalgic and you can make great pictures there.

    This is the city park, on s sunshine day it is a nice place for a picnic or just to relax and give some rest to your feet if you were walking non stop the whole day as I did.

    ALTES AKH

    by mel_bee Updated May 19, 2003

    This old hospital now belongs to the university and inside there are lots of restaurants, cafes and a children's play area. Great for sitting and reading or having coffee whilst the kids play.

    Leafy grounds of the old hospital
