Mountain summit


The Parapluieberg is a 562 meter high mountain in the southern Wienerwald in Lower Austria. It is located in the municipality of Perchtoldsdorf and is considered a popular recreational area of Vienna. The mountain owes its name to the umbrella pines that grow here in the surrounding Föhrenberge Nature Park, because in Viennese these pines are called parapluie trees.

Discovery tour on the way to the summit

The mountain is easily accessible on several marked hiking trails from almost all directions, except from the northwest, where the rocky outcrops of the former quarries are located.

A starting point for a hike to the Parapluieberg is the terminal stop of streetcar line 60 in Vienna-Rodaun. Following the yellow signs in the direction of Parapluieberg, the border with Lower Austria is crossed and leads via Perchtoldsdorf to Perchtoldsdorfer Heide, a natural jewel of international importance. With a lot of patience the hiker gets to see the gopher living in the wild. In addition, the ruins of Kammerstein are located in this area - one of the oldest ruins in Austria, but only a few remains of the 13th century castle still bear witness. For a rest, two huts invite you to stay. The Franz-Ferdinand-Schutzhaus (532 m) has a terrace with an unobstructed view of the city of Vienna, while right next to the Kammersteiner Hütte (582 m) the Josefswarte offers a great view.

The summit of the Parapluieberg lies a few hundred meters west of the Franz Ferdinand Hut. There is a small wooden cross on it.

  • Tip for mountain bikers: The signposted Parapluie mountain bike trail leads over the mountain.
