Ascent Trip Report

From central Vienna, we took the U4 U bahn line to Heligenstadt, followed by a 39A bus to the end of the route in Sievering. We walked up Sievering Straße and then followed the yellow footpath to Häuserl am Himmel and on to Kreuzeiche. We took the blue path to Jägerwiese and, just beyond we took an unmarked path that climbed steeply but directly to the summit. This was marked by a cross sticking out of a cairn and was higher than that base of the tower,I felt. The Habsburgwarte was a minute's walk from the summit but was closed; it is open at the weekend and holidays in the summer, in good weather. I'm sure it gives good views and I was disappointed not to see them.

In descent we followed the green path to Grüß-di-a-Gott-Wirt and then went via Häuserl am Roan. There were extensive views over Vienna here and we sat for a while enjoying them. We then took a path to Häuserl am Stoan and descended on a path through pleasant woodland and by the side of some vineyards. There were good views over the vineyards to Vienna. When we arrived back in Sievering, it was a short walk to the bus stop and the 39A bus was already waiting to take us back to Heiligenstadt.
