BADEN and the Vienna Woods or just take a Bath


Taking the family out on a day hike in the Vienna Woods is a great way to get out of the house for a day.


The wide paths make it easy to avoid stares if you are pushing a stroller. Longer and steeper paths can also be found for those who like to hike.


Another attraction is to stroll around the quaint city.

Budapest weekend

Budapest is an easy drive for a weekend getaway from Vienna. The downtown area is chock full of restaurants, and after dark, becomes quite the hot spot for nightlife.


Both sides of the Danube river provide beautiful views.

Everything is available by the light rail and easy walk.

Some parts will be appreciated by the kids because of the resemblance to Disneyland, or is it the other way?

More photographs can be seen at my travel website.



Day trip to Kahlenberg

One of the most visited day trip locations near Vienna is Kahlenberg. It has a vast view of the city and lots of easy hiking trails for the whole family.


The drive to the top is also easy or you can choose to hike.

Waldseil Park


Waldseil Park in Kahlenberg is a great place for a family day trip. It’s almost as adventurous as Zip Lining, but well organized, and quite safe.

They have a English language website for the latest information:




Recommended Peruvian food in the First

Who would imagine finding Peruvian cuisine in Austria? Well, we did, and it’s near home for us, and well worth the trip if you are outside the Ring. It’s informal, but service and food makes it worth the trip.


In response to the question:  “how kid-friendly it seemed?” I recently asked, and they place families in the lower level. They have one highchair, but no booster seats. It would be best to call ahead.
