For the walk to the peak I used the Tulbinger Steig. There are signposts, but not consistent. The white-red-white markings will provide better orientation.

You pass vineyards called "In Ziersetzen". 

Then you enter the wood.

Then you leave the wood again and walk alongside fields.

From the tower you have a wonderful view over the "Tullnerfeld", the plain area around Tulln.

Then you walk to the https://www.tulbingerkogel.at/, a fine restaurant and reach a paved road.

On the right side you can see the international vineyard https://www.tulbingerkogel.at/wein-wienerwald/. In 1998 the world championship of sommelliers took place at the restaurant. Sommelliers of 30 countries brought vines to this event. The vines were planted here. The grapes of these vines are vinified. This very special wine is not for sale, but you can taste it in the restaurant.

You can then take an abbreviation over the grassland (and later through the woodland) or walk alongside the road.

Then you leave the street and continue walking on a small path through the wood. You are now near the (unmarked) peak of the "Herrenberg", 428 m above sea level.

Herrenbergstraße

The path leads to a gravel road called "Herrenbergstraße" in that you have to turn right.

You walk down this road for some time. Then you have to turn left on a mountain bike track.

The trail is nice to walk, but you have to be careful so that you can take a step on the side when mountain bikers want to ride downhill.

Kirchengasse

The mountain bike trail leads to the village where you continue walking down straight ahead in the "Kirchengasse".

Alongside the stairway up to the church you can see five baroque statues.

After visiting the church you continue walking down the Kirchengasse. Soon you will reach the main street and turn right into it to come to your starting point again.
