Nussdorf, Vienna, Austria
Beethovengang WalkWhen Beethoven lived in Heiligenstadt––a former town since swallowed up by Vienna––he often took walks along what's now known as Beethovengang.
Those interested in a respite from the crowded city centre can hop aboard the D tram (a veritable tour in itself) and head toward Nussdorf, getting off at the final stop. Beethovengang winds alongside a stream, bringing walkers closer to the vineyards.
Climbing amongst the rows of growing grapes will result in a breathtaking view of the city, and help you work up an appetite. Plenty of Heurigen dot the Grinzing and Nussdorf neighbourhoods, offering plenty of hearty eats and local wine for the famished traveller.
