kahlenberg, more wine and food!

on saturday we took our first trip up to kahlenberg to see the spectacular view of the city (and head to one of the heurigen!). i wasn't so keen on the bus ride (it was very hot!) but it was well worth it when we got to the top.
we went for a walk down the hills surrounded by vineyards and enjoyed the afternoon at a cute heuriger called hirt. we drank jugs (!) of white wine with soda in ice cold mugs and ate traditional austrian food in the sunshine. it was one of the best afternoons i have had in vienna!
(in case you are wondering what this is - its a traditional dumpling filled with black sausage. it looks a little scary i know but it actually tasted really good).
