Rundumadum: Stages 2 and 3 Map

Stage 2 of the Rundumadum begins from Cobenzl winery and children’s farm, overlooking Vienna’s skyline. From there, a dirt path leads uphill through young forest and some hillside clearings to Gasthaus zum Agnesbründl, which also has a small farm and a playground.

Description

Back in the forest, the trail traces the slope of Hermannskogel, which is the tallest hill in Vienna. You can take a short detour from Rundumadum to reach the top. On the descent, grassy meadows punctuate shady forest, and the path eventually comes to an inn with a cozy café. After that, it’s only a short distance uphill, through continual forest, to Häuserl am Roan and Höhenstrasse. This is the end of Stage 2, and you can catch a bus here if not proceeding to Stage 3.

On Stage 3, the Rundumadum continues as a dirt path in the forest, and up a hill called Hameau. On top is a grassy meadow with a historic refuge house that’s no longer used. The trail then makes a somewhat steep descent of the hill and comes to a road, which it follows to Schwarzenbergpark. This is an inviting landscaped park, and one of the oldest in Vienna. The stage ends at the far end of the park, near Marswiese bus stop.
