Discover The Wienerwald Austria

All around the capital, the Wienerwald, the Viennese forest unravels its necklace of green around the soft hills and hikers' paths. It also holds the Augustinian abbey that goes back to the 12th century. There is another very pleasant excursion to the Mount Kahlenberg. Its summit, 1,640 feet high, dominates the whole of the Viennese valley. The more athletic will continue to go up to the neighbouring summit, the Leopoldsberg.
