We started with the train at 9.40am from Wien Meidling. Unfortunately there was no train on the weekend around 8am… so it was not possible to hike a lot because the sun would set at around 4pm… also I wanted to visit the Fire Tower (Tűztorony) in Sopron and this closed at 5pm…
This video was an inspiration for me for this trip:
I saw some kind of monastery stairs in this video which I liked a lot and after some research I identified them as the stairs to the “Sopronbánfalva Kolostor”.
