Viewing platform with showcase bee hives

A beautiful view over the Wien valley and a good place to learn about native trees.

A few years ago, as part of our "Generation Forest" project we have built a viewing platform at a beautiful spot along the Salamanderweg trail, from which the ever-changing natural regeneration on a slope can be observed.

A view from the "Waldkindergarten" to the "Waldpension".

The "Darüber-Blick" is a good place to learn about native trees, which are planted in large wooden troughs, with their characteristics explained and labeled.

The wooden platform allows a view of the regenerating forest and the Purkersdorf center.

On a second platform next to it, our beekeeper looks after several beehives. Our visitors can closely observe the busy bees.

Our tip

Enjoy the peace and quiet and the view "of" the forest.Observe the various insects that have taken up residence next to the WIldbienen in the Nützlingshotel.

Note: Sites of nature park bees are located next to the nature park center on the Schöffelsteinwiese and on the Feihlerhöhe.


The Kellerwiese is accessible from the train station Purkersdorf-Zentrum via the P&R parking lot and the nature park bridge over the B44 in a few minutes.

From there, the first part of the nature trail leads to the small rest area near the Sängerbrunnen, from where the Salamanderweg trail leads on a forest path to the "Darüber-Blick" platform. Walking time is about 15 min with about 50 meters of elevation gain.
