Hello!!
I´m Sebstián from Argentina and I will visit you in May.
Would you tell me if in a three-day visit I can make a trip to one of the forests that surround the city?

Thank you

Seba

Hello Seba,

one day you can have a glipse of the Wiernerwald (Viennese forest). So in three days you can see a lot.

Here are some maps:

Hi Seba,

I am living 4 minutes walk away from the vienna woods - so if you want you can contact me - I always had to live at the edge of the city...it is just another energy for me and I am still able to enjoy all waht a city has to offer.

Thank you very much, Maria and Elizabeth!

Elizabeth:
we are four people (me, my girlfriend and a friend couple), would you like to help us in our forest visit?
Sounds great.
Thanks in advance

Ok.

We will be in Vienna from 18th May until 21th May (this day we will travel to Prague).
I don´t remember the hotel location.
About the forests excursion, we´re planning an half day trip. Would you tell me if it´s enough?

Thanks

Seba

Hi Seba
you can walk for an hour or for a whole day, depending on what you want . You can reach the forests from the city center at different locations with public transport (even in half an hour depending where you start). You can decide to go for lunch or for dinner in one of the little restaurants(Gasthäuser) that are located in the woods or the edge of the woods-some offer a realy good view of vienna. To find the right hike for you please describe what you expect - good views of the city or just being in the middle of the woods with just nature around, a hike with a rest in a typical Gasthaus?? there are many options...you might want to check the stadtwanderwege to check out the right length for you.(see previous posts)

Oh...

I like to be surrounded by nature and the "good views" too, ha.
And the woods around the danube and it´s former rivers sound great. I have to talk with my travel partners to decide.

I´ll be back.

See you

Seba
