A sunny day out in the Lainzer Tiergarten, former imperial hunting grounds. At the highest point inside the park is the Hubertuswarte, a viewing tower with nice views over the Wienerwald. Furthermore, the Wiener Blick (“Vienna view”) meadow offers a fantastic view over the city of Vienna. Always a pleasure to come here.
From the Hütteldorf train station through the Nikolaitor entrance, and via a long loop past the Hubertuswarte and Wiener Blick back to the Nikolaitor and train station.
