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.
Hiking the Kalenberg is hard work, but breathtaking. Stopping at small wine huts is part of the experience. Check opening hours and days if you are looking for a specific Heurigen. Only drawback for the woods is lack of signage which can cause some wrong turns and lengthen the hike,
I'm a mountain girl from Vancouver and I was a bit disappointed to realize that it was impractical to visit the mountains from Vienna, so I settled a nice walk in the woods. I'm not exactly sure where the woods start and ends, but it covers many, many kms. I entered from the city by taking the 48A bus up...
"Karl-Marx-Hof: A break from the imperial glory and glamour"
reviewed 22 May 2018 by A5261XBgraham
The 1920s in Vienna were a period of radical social experiments, especially at the hands of the social-democratic city government. Among its achievements was the Karl-Marx-Hof social housing complex. It's still there and a wonderful exhibition in what was the communal laundry explores the history of this period. It's in German, but there is an English language pamphlet. (And the...
A tiny park set up by a Japanese professor to honour the relations with the Japanese sister town. It is very nicely decorated, with a pool and a tea house (was closed), a few water falls just amidst the city. It is great to sit there for 15-20 minutes to enjoy its trees shadows and the pool with tortoises, ducks...
Our Austrian friends took us to this place for the views over Vienna and of the Danube in particular. It was a lovely sunny day and we did indeed have some magnificent views. It wasn't filled with loads of tourists either so we were able to take our time looking out over the city and taking pictures.

"Wonderful meal and setting"
reviewed yesterday by wrb3
Have eaten a couple of times at the in-town cousin of this restaurant (Figlmüller's, which is super-busy but very good) and decided to head out to Grinzing for a night out. Figl's did not disappoint: a beautiful; restaurant and patio and a diverse menu with many appealing options. I chose their version of Kalbfleischpfanzerl (this may have been a special--and...

I took a group of friends to Grinding to introduce them to heuriger. I'm really pleased that we booked Mullers as they all thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and I liked it better than others I've previously been to.

"Different dining experience, good and bad"
reviewed 1 week ago by Victor S
Taken here by Viennese friends to whom it was also a first visit. just about a street of restaurants - this one chosen because it seemed to have some live music which turned out to be an accordionist playing a medley of forgettable tunes, not Strauss, not Mozart.
My first impression is that the prices were quite high. The menu...
Superb breakfast, nice location ... all is just cool. The wifi just need some more tuning though . On the 3rd floor with 4 devices on wifi - it went into snail speed instead of warp speed :-) But all in all a very nice hotel
The hotel is in the 19th district--a very nice neighborhood. While it doesn't have the marvelous tourist attractions that other neighborhoods have, it is close to grocery stores, public transportation and delightful restaurants.
The staff are helpful and accommodating.
Very nice hotel, very nice people, a little out of the city, but we liked that. a great "Austrian feel" to this hotel. A 30 min bus / tram trip in, but once you got the hang of it, the bus's are uber efficient! if you don't want the City Centre hub-bub and like some quiet but still within easy...
"Disappointing - does not meet expectations of a 4 stars hotel!"

Unless you need to stay 1 or 2 nights in this very nice area of Vieneese heurigers - avoid! Suspicious staff with ironic smirk on their faces has nothing pleasant even if they try to be helpful. First I was given a tiny room which did not correspond to my reservation on Booking.com - with endless issues on how many...
Alas I did not stay here, but ate here as part of a business conference. First impressions on entering where WOW, beautiful lounge/terrace area with amazing views of Vienna.
The staff were exceptional, always ensuring that glasses were filled and dirty ashtrays removed (we don;t get that in the UK!)
The dining hall and food (buffet) were equally as good...
