What is heuriger?

Originally the term “heuriger” referred to this year’s wine. Over time, it came to be known as a place where winemakers were permitted to serve their own fresh wines. The wine tasting is topped off by many savory delicacies from Viennese cuisine. Here we list six cozy heuriger where you can enjoy Vienna’s wine.

Josephine
Josephine
Hotel

My absolute insider tip in the 7th district is the enchanting boutique hotel "Josefine", which was only reopened in 2021. The glamorous design in the style of Art Deco takes guests back in a different time. The unmistakable style of the »Josefine« is also continued in the basement of the house, where the well-known »Barfly's Club« is located, whose offer of 1200 whiskies and 500 rums can hardly be surpassed.

Take a step into history during your stay at our luxury hotel in Vienna with themed rooms adorned with antique pieces originated from the past. Be there as Adam and Eve take their first bite by staying in the Garden of Eden room.

In the heart of the city, we build bridges between the elegance of a vanished decade and the urban lifestyle of a self-confident society. Dreamy and creative, passionate and relaxed, sensual and detailed, Vienna and Paris tell their mutual love story in these rooms.

Urban stories are taking new directions through the hotel’s gateway. A journey into a slowed-down present, a dream of the golden age in Paris. A space for people anticipating new attitudes towards the art of living. Incomprehensibility meets uncompromising authenticity.

Forget about the commercial hotel nonsense spread around the Globe. It's time for a new wave of hospitality that focuses on a friendly, unpretentious environment where you will feel at home. Superbude hits the right chords with its laid-back nature. Breakfast in the afternoon? Sure thing! There is nothing more stressful than trying to wake up for a hotel breakfast after a long night out.

The Viennese classic in the traditional Viennese confectionery "Kaiserschmarrn to go". The perfect provisions for a walk through the historic alleys of Vienna's city centre. In front of the large shop window you can enjoy watching how the Kaiserschmarrn is prepared in large pans before it is garnished with plum roaster in small portions to take away. A real treat for the palate!

CONCORDIA
SCHLÖSSL
CONCORDIA SCHLÖSSL
Restaurant

Cozy, rustic and a bit like from another time, the Concordia Schlössl in the 11th district looks with the huge clock above the entrance, whose hands always stand on 5 to 12, the enchanted garden with the wooden furniture and the large Christ sculpture in the middle. The traditional restaurant is known above all for its hearty Austrian cuisine and especially for its extraordinary, original schnitzel creations. For Schnitzel fans, a visit to the Concordia Schlössl is a must!

DAS
KLEINE CAFÉ
DAS KLEINE CAFÉ
Restaurant

Franziskanerplatz is a small square in Vienna's city centre. It is just as beautiful as the rest of the city centre, but there is still something very special here: the Small Café. It seems very inconspicuous at first glance and in fact it is not the huge attraction like Café Sacher, but that's what makes it so special. The café is cramped and smoky and it looks as if time had stopped here many decades ago. So if you want to visit a typical Viennese café away from the tourist crowds, then the Kleine Café am Franziskanerplatz is the right address.

BITZINGER
BITZINGER
Restaurant

In Vienna, the "Bitzinger" is a veteran: its extraordinary sausage stands at the Albertina and the Prater are among the hotspots of the capital – for celebrities, tourists and locals. If you take a look into the showcase of the Bitzinger and expect a conventional sausage stand, you will be amazed here. While Waldviertler, Debreziner & Co are still sizzling on the grill, the landlord recommends his guests: a glass of champagne. Ending the Opera Ball just a few meters away at the Albertina has almost as much tradition as the sausage dinner itself. The Bitzinger is an Austrian cultural asset par excellence.

Volksgarten Pavilion
Outdoor Drinking & Dining

Where trendy DJs play by night, things are a little quieter by day. Under giant trees, we enjoy our shady break in the Volksgarten Pavilion and look forward to the wonderful Austrian and Mediterranean grilled specialties from the smoker. The pavilion is also designed in the retro style of the 1950s and exudes the wonderful charm of that time. Interesting variety is offered by the petanque court for a decent round of boules and by exciting duels on the table football table.

Outdoor Drinking & Dining

The Amerlingbeisl is at home in the unique, narrow Biedermeier lanes on the Spittelberg. After a long day in the historic center of Vienna or on Mariahilfer Strasse, a detour into the cozy outdoor dining area of the Amerlingbeisl promises to be the perfect time out. The culinary selection ranges from Austrian specialties such as Wiener Schnitzel & Co. to international dishes. A special treat is the organic roast pork served every Saturday and Sunday. A visit to the outdoor dining area is also worth it in bad weather. This is made possible by a hydraulically operated roof.

Salonplafond
Salonplafond
Outdoor Drinking & Dining

We find the restaurant Salonplafond inside the MAK – Austrian Museum of Applied Arts/Contemporary Art. It describes itself as a modern, traditional Viennese inn and successfully delivers the classic inn culture with a modern twist. For example, Viennese classics alternate with modern creations on the menu. However, the real highlight of the Salonplafond cannot be seen from the street: the wonderful outdoor dining area tucked away in the green courtyard. On fine days, it offers plenty of space to relax on 150 seats and comfortable loungers on a large lawn. The outdoor bar plies guests in excellent style with a range of fresh drinks.

The kitchen at Clementine im Glashaus also serves up traditional Viennese cuisine with a creative and modern twist. The classy restaurant is at home in the impressive Palais Coburg, which was built atop Vienna's former city walls in 1845. It gets its name from Clementine d’Orléans, one of the first residents of the Palais. We enjoy a particularly high-quality outdoor dining area experience here in the exquisite ambience of the Palais garden with its sycamores and magnolias.

Ulrich
Ulrich
Outdoor Drinking & Dining

A particularly Austrian version of the outdoor dining area is the sidewalk café. Here, the tables are placed outside the establishment on public land. The sidewalk café of the Ulrich – located right on the idyllic St-Ulrichs-Platz – is a mix of café-restaurant and bar, and is one of the best of its kind in Vienna. It is perfectly suited to a hearty breakfast or brunch on a summer's morning. In the heart of Vienna's trendy 7th district, the main menu and lunchtime menu fulfill all culinary wishes. The home-made pita bread is an absolute must. The perfect complement to this: the equally home-made lemonade.

The Glacis Beisl is slightly tucked away behind the MuseumsQuartier and offers a perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle between the Volkstheater, Mariahilfer Strasse and the historic city center. A quietly babbling fountain, abundant flowers, and even more greenery make the outdoor dining area a little oasis in the middle of Vienna. At the Glacis Beisl, the chefs give the Old Viennese cuisine a modern touch. All served with an impressive selection of wines.

Heuer on Karlsplatz
Heuer on Karlsplatz
Outdoor Drinking & Dining

We find the restaurant Heuer on Karlsplatz, one of Vienna's most central locations. The restaurant's excellent food and drinks can be enjoyed even better outdoors. The chef gathers the ingredients for this from 36 small regional suppliers, processes them himself by pickling or fermenting them, and uses them to conjure up traditional and modern creations on his guests' plates. Of similar high quality are the fantastic cocktails. Together with the wonderful terrace, all of this results in one of the most popular meeting places in the center of Vienna.

Heuriger

Five generations of the Bernreiter family have managed this heuriger in the heart of Jedlersdorf north of the Danube. The large, shady garden is a great place to share a glass or two of wine with friends and family. Those who can’t resist the tempting scent of roast pork, fried chicken and other delicacies drifting over from nearby tables can also savor the dishes from the heuriger’s buffet. The ingredients for the numerous wonderful treats come from regional producers.

Although we’re not far from the city’s hustle and bustle, up here on the Nussberg it still feels like another world. Vienna is at our feet and unusually tranquil as we enjoy a short break directly in the green vineyard. It gets even better when the excellent wine comes. The cuisine at the Wieninger wine tavern is a blend of tradition and innovation. The high-quality regional ingredients turn typical heuriger classics into new, sophisticated creations.

The Edlmoser vineyard operates one of Vienna’s oldest heuriger. Guests can get cozy at the winegrower’s house from 1629 or one of Vienna’s most beautiful dining gardens. Of course the nice weather makes it easy for us to choose. We enjoy our short break with a refreshing wine spritzer and look forward to the delicious food. Based on old family recipes, the finest ingredients are combined into the popular classics of Viennese cuisine. Don’t forget to save room for some cream cheese strudel!

With Rainer Christ, the Christ Vineyards have one of the most creative, youngest winemakers in Vienna. Tradition and modernism intersect in many places here – whether in their own vineyards or at the heuriger, which lets its guests choose between modern or traditionally designed spaces. Christ Vineyards also offers a high-class heuriger buffet to accompany the excellent wines. Even with its modern features, the family operation has always retained its special charm.

Mayer on Pfarrplatz
Mayer on Pfarrplatz
Heuriger

Mayer vineyards on Pfarrplatz have stood for superior Viennese wine since 1683. This tradition is still alive and well at the vineyard’s own heuriger. We’re happy to linger in this dining garden, one of the coziest in Vienna, and sample the lavish heuriger buffet. It includes a wide range of spreads, classic warm dishes and fabulous pastries. Many things here are a reminder of the vineyard’s most famous guest. Ludwig van Beethoven lived here in 1817, in what was Heiligenstadt at the time, and worked on compositions such as his world-famous 9th Symphony.

This is how easy and pleasant a trip to the countryside can be. Award-winning wines, a substantial heuriger buffet and one of the best views of Vienna are certainly a worthy finale to our tour of Vienna’s heuriger and wine taverns.

Leopold Museum

The Leopold Museum is home to the collection founded by Rudolf Leopold, which today comprises more than 6,000 objects of Austrian art from the second half of the 19th century and Modernism. No other museum affords such a direct and comprehensive experience of the concept of art and the intellectual world of Vienna around 1900, and allows visitors to retrace the art-historical developments from Atmospheric Impressionism via Jugendstil to Expressionism. The museum’s highlight is the “Vienna 1900” exhibition, opened in 2019, which showcases the world’s largest collection of works by the Austrian Expressionist Egon Schiele, masterpieces by Gustav Klimt, the internationally most extensive permanent presentation on Oskar Kokoschka, further works of Viennese Modernism as well as artisan craftwork from the Wiener Werkstätte.
