Vienna from Kahlenberg by Clemens Pfeiffer
After 2 days of talks and 2 1/2 days of BoF it's time to take your eyes away from the beautiful code that makes up our software and go to look at the beautiful city of Vienna from above. The daytrip of Akademy 2018 will lead us to
Kahlenberg from the city
What to do there?
We have a few options what to do there:
How to get there (without hiking)?
We will meet at 14:00 outside the Opera exit of the subway station Karlsplatz (next to the fountain). From there we will take public transport all the way to Kahlenberg.
How to get there (with hiking)?
Stadtwanderweg 1 is an easy hiking trail that leads up to Kahlenberg. It will take you around 1.5 hours of hiking in which you need to complete an elevation gain of around 350 meters. We will organize all the people interested in hiking up into a group and will find you someone local to accompany you.
10 minutes walk from the cafe on Kahlenberg there is the Waldseilpark Kahlenberg, a forest rope park. It offers 14 climbing courses on 3 different difficulty levels. Go there and have a few fun hours challenging yourself to master as many courses as possible.
After the day on the mountain
After the day on the mountain (exact time will be announced during Akademy) we will go to the Prater amusement park to have a fun evening. Different from many modern amusement parks, this one has no entrance fee and you only have to pay when you ride an attraction. There are many possibilities there, e.g.: Ride the big or small ferris wheel to see Vienna at night, ride rollercoasters, eat Langos and other small snacks or other rides or go to the beergarden for traditional food & beers.
