This location will definitely touch the hearts of any dramatists out there who seeks a different view!
From the Kahlenbergerdorf, a small winding footpath leads up to Leopoldsberg that was so steeply laid out that it wholesomely consists of stairs. The Nasenweg (literally: nose path) attracts me regularly (despite guaranteed muscle soreness) because of its dramaturgy: the stairway starts at Danube heights, and with every turn a new view of the Vineyards, the Danube and Vienna reveals itself. During the ascent, gravity seems to inexplicably increase, but once you reach the castle on Leopoldsberg at last (completely breathless), not only the view towards the East neveals itself, but also the anticipation for the Heuriger past which the path will lead during the descent.
