Last weekend I did the second Stadtwanderweg, which turned out to be absolutely fantastic. We spent about 5 hours in total, including a lunch break and some sightseeing. This path is starting and ending in the 19th district, close to Neustift am Walde.

Jesus is always watching over us wherever we are walking in Austria.
Blindschleiche, we think. Hard to say. Does anyone know?
The Habsburgwarte on Hermannskogel, built in 1888. This is the reference point of the land measuring in Austria. They decided to make this the reference point in 1892 already. 🙂
The explanation in German.
And it had a smashing view over Vienna! And Klosterneuburg on the other side.
We stopped and had lunch at Gasthaus zum Agnesbrünnl, which is located close to a water source which in the old days was claimed to have healing powers. It was extremely picturesce.
We also went past Cobenzl.
And looked at the life-circle of trees.
Lots to see, beautiful views and a chance to get ice cream on the way, I have to say I can recommend Stadtwanderweg 2!
…in Prater, where the dandelions are popping up all over. 🙂
Yesterday I made the most of the awesome weather and checked out one of the Stadtwanderwege that I so far have neglected.
Starting and ending in Stammersdorf, it has always seemed so far away. But the streets in this part of town are super cute.

There was some uphill walking, but less than the Kahlenberg walk. Wiews were found anyway. 🙂
The walk took me about 2 hours and 50 minutes at a leisurely pace. It’s approximately 10 kilometres.
It felt great to get out of the noisy city for a while. I’m not often out here in the north east, so there were new things to see for me.
And the downhill from the top was not very steep, at least not in many places.
I would definitely recommend this for a getaway on a nice day like yesterday. 🙂
Was walking to work on my last day, and I saw a lot of leaves on the ground. It struck me that maybe autumn wants to come this year too? We have had such a long summer this year, so it kind of feels like it won’t ever end. Hmm.

We luckily don’t get too much smog over Vienna but today there definitely was a brown layer over the city. It made me feel happy that I’m working out of town. 🙂 I hope it will disappear soon!
Still working hard. But I need to take time to get fit, so here is a photo from my morning walk to Kahlenberg.
I love plants. One kind of plant that I’m not allowed is a cactus. My other half explained to me that unless I want to hurt him, I’ll just forget about cacti, as he always finds a way of landing on them if they’re around. So, I have to just enjoy the ones here in the botanical garden I guess. 🙂
