Sophienalpe, Austria

4 October 2020

A familiar hike in the Wienerwald (Vienna forest), but still enjoyable. Starting in the Pötzleinsdorfer park, then the Schwarzenbergpark, up to Hameau, over to the Sophienalpe, and back down into the city.

A boundary marker from 1794. H.N.W. stands for Herrschaft Neuwaldegg.

A sign of what's coming in the next couple of weeks...
