Walking in the Vienna Vineyards

Last updated on April 8th, 2020 at 06:49 am

Vienna and wine are closely linked. After all, Vienna is the only capital in Europe where wine growing is cultivated on a large scale.

The vineyards on the hilly foothills of the city are popular hiking areas that are easily accessible by public transport. The nearest wine tavern is not that far away.

A particularly beautiful route with views over Vienna and the Danube starts in Nussdorf. From the end of tram line D, you can walk leisurely uphill, past the vineyards and to the wine taverns of renowned winegrowers. If you feel more like hiking, continue on the Kahlenberg or the Leopoldsberg.

Less famous is Stammersdorf on the other side of the Danube, which can be reached by tram line 31. At the foot of the Bisamberg, you first walk through beautiful old cellar lanes and past many famous wine taverns before standing in the middle of the vineyards and enjoying the view of Vienna from a new perspective.
