    Heuriger (front)
    Heuriger is the name given to those Eastern-Austrian wine-taverns, where wine-growers serve the most recent year's wine and where patrons can experience Gemütlichkeit. Gemütlichkeit connotes the notion of belonging, social acceptance, cheerfulness, the absence of anything hectic and the opportunity to spend quality time. Wikipedia:Heuriger, Wikipedia:Gemütlichkeit

    Heuriger (buffet)The Heuriger serves a fine assortment of its own wines, grown on adjacent wine fields. A buffet is provided, with a rich selection of cold and hot Austrian meals, such as Liptauer and Wiener Schnitzel, and Austrian desserts like the world-famous Strudel.

  • Touristic Information

    Vienna, Austria

    ViennaFew cities in the world glide so effortlessly between the present and the past like Vienna. Its splendid historical face is easily recognised: grand imperial palaces and fantastic interiors, museums flanking magnificent squares and, above all, the Hofburg – where the Habsburg rulers lived and ruled the empire. But this historical aspect often makes us forget that Vienna is also one of Europe's most dynamic urban spaces. Just a stone's throw from Hofburg, the MuseumsQuartier houses some of the world’s most provocative contemporary art behind a striking basalt façade. Outside, a courtyard buzzes on summer evenings with throngs of Viennese drinking and chatting.

    It is a reminder that the city of Mozart, Beethoven, Haydn, Schubert, Strauss, Brahms, Mahler and Schönberg is also the Vienna of Falco, who immortalised its urban textures in song. It's also a place where modern fusion restaurants stand alongside the traditional Beisl, Gasthäuser and the famous Konditorei, where you can taste the world-famous Sacher Torte.Sachertorte
