  View from the Kapuzinerberg
by rui_bijie

Best views on the old city:
- probably the most superb view: from the Moenchsberg (right beside the Museum of Modern Art - in construction)
- another lovely view: from the Muellner Steg (pedestrians bridge a little bit north of the city centre); best access via Muelln (right behind the Augustiner Braeu) or by using the steps right behind the Festspielhaus/Toscanini-Hof
- from the Kapuzinerberg (especially if you take the "Basteiweg" along the former defense wall - 2,2 km); access via Linzergasse or Steingasse
- from the fortress of course (unfortunately you will not be able to see the main attraction, the fortress itself!)
- to be continued!

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
