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.
Spot the miniature
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. 🙂
Still working hard. But I need to take time to get fit, so here is a photo from my morning walk to Kahlenberg.
It’s the first I’ve seen of spring. Happy! As I’m walking to work once a week I’m hoping to see it coming slowly. 🙂
Sometimes it’s tempting to stop and sit for a while…
Just spent the day up in the hills under Kahlenberg. Love it!
Yesterday I walked down to Wagenwiese, and even though it was beautifully sunny and hot, I could hear rolling thunder the whole way. It came from over the 22nd District, where it was raining and thundering. On hot days, it’s quite common that we get thunder and lightning in the afternoon.
It’s so clear! I’m so glad it’s weekend, and that I finally have time to live (and blog!) again 🙂
Can be found on Kahlenbergerstrasse. About nr 140 I think. I find it hilarious, but then what do I know. I heard it belonged to a sheikh. And someone I met at a bar who owns a house further up told me that it used to belong to an African king. In any case it seems totally excessive in the quiet vineyards of Grinzing, to have cameras, light columns and several fences with barbed wire to keep out the occasional jogger or mountain biker that comes up here.
