Mount Kahlenberg & The Wine Villages Of Vienna

Stella Asteria - Mount Kahlenberg

During our day in Vienna, we had a guided tour at the wine villages of Vienna and mount Kahlenberg. We gladly found out that we had left the best tour for the end! Mount Kahlenberg offers spectacular views to the entire city of Vienna and Danube river, while we also got the chance to see the wine villages of Vienna on our way up.

What impressed me the most in this area (and Vienna in general) is how safe it is. Our tour guide used to be a policeman for 40 years and told us that not once he had to pull his gun out! He also told us that even in the less safe area of Vienna, it is absolutely safe for a woman to walk alone after midnight! By the way if you ever visit Vienna and want a private tour by car, Mr Franz Amon is your man. Not only we enjoyed an amazing tour with him and learned the most important things about Vienna and the history and culture of Austria, but also we really enjoyed his company as well.

On our way to Kahlenberg we admired the Vienna Woods, the Viennese’s favorite outdoors. An amazing place for hiking, bicycling, or just for getting some fresh air! While we were on our way up, Mr Amon was telling us that even there, it is absolutely safe to go for a walk in the woods at any time of the day. At that point I caught myself being skeptical, when I turned my head out of the car window to see some people jogging in the woods, and couples enjoying a tranquil walk hand in hand. This is something you just don’t do where I live, if you love your life. Never.

Now the tranquil and picturesque wine villages. Most of the vineyards and properties at the wine villages of Vienna, have been in the same family for generations. The vineyards are small comparing to international standards, but the wine is really good despite their low price. Often these smaller places produce remarkable wine. Plus, these local wineries make for a fantastic excuse to venture out of the city center.

The views from mount Kahlenberg where spectacular, despite the fog. It was freezing cold, yet we managed to take some shots there, which I hope you like.

Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!

    Love your outfit Stella. The trip sounded so lovely! I haven’t been back to Vienna in so many years. All I could truly remember was how pretty and clean the city was. The architecture is really nice. I went to Prague right after Vienna and the architectural style is so different. From roman to gothic! The wine tour sounded great. It really is such a safe city. I am really bad though. I always walk alone on my own even at 3am in places I travel. I just always walk with more awareness to my surroundings. I’m sure my sister and parents would not be happy to hear about this when I travel alone. lol Have a lovely weekend hun.

      Hello Miki! You are right, I was really amazed by how clean Vienna is!! One can sparsely see some gothic elements in the architecture of Vienna but definitely nothing like Prague. I haven’t been yet but I would really like to visit one day. You are so adventurous babe!! Maybe I would walk alone at 3 am in Vienna, now that I know how safe it is, or in the centre of Paris, but I am generally to afraid to do so, especially in Greece. If you walk at 3 am alone, you must have decided that this is probably your last walk as well!! Please don’t do that here haha! Wishing you a great start to the weekend hun! xoxo

    Excellent photos, Stella. Those doors look very interesting. Ah, and the plaque about Beethoven. A favorite of mine. And your lovely blue coat. Another favorite of mine.
    Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

        I have quite a varied taste in music; like my eclectic collection of books. Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Dvorak, Elgar etc.
        I love all good music. X

    You were in my town. Ha!! Vienna is my second home. I used to live there before I moved to the UK, but my families remained there. I love that country. Last year I was there for Xmas with the family. Anyway sound like you had a great time and you look great as always, dearest Stella. That coat is nice. 🙂

    Wonderful pictures Stella! I love the framing at the one where you come out of the door. One of the things I’ve loved most about living in Germany is how safe it feels. I could go home, alone at night with my bike. It makes me extremely sad to hear all this horrible raping news lately. It feels awful to be suspicious and not live in innocence any longer.

    Once again a beautiful choice of outfit. Love the long coat:)

      That sounds so great Tatjana! You know very well that here in Greece it is super dangerous to ride a bike at any time of the day, to begin with! Moreover late at night! These rapings have happened in Germany? Really sad news.
