  Vienna Events
Social Hike XL: Sophia's Summit

Nearby Vienna at only 477m, this is an almost surreal mountain scenery fit for Heidi or the Trapp's. After meeting up at Vienna Main Station (Wien Hauptbahnhof), a train and bus will take us to the start of our hiking route. First we walk up a steep-ish forest trail until reaching the Apple Cider plateau. From here we continue our route, passing Charlie's Lookout with stunning views until arriving at the actual alp. Following a former cable car track, we descend to a forest hut and further down along an atmospheric creek. A hidden, mountain-hugging pathway will lead us back to the bus stop for our return trip to Vienna Main Station.

Underway we'll have fun with ice breakers, discussion prompts and local trivia.

Your host is an outward-thinking individual who lived in three cultures on two continents. Fluent in 7½ languages, he visited 40+ countries from Nicaragua to North Korea and loves sharing off-beat travel stories. Ask him anything!

Language: English
