Off the beaten track, in one of Vienna’s most scenic settings, you’ll find this romantic “Heuriger”, a wine tavern. Grinzing is pretty well known by tourists who arrive here to enjoy a typical Austrian experience, yet it is unlikely they’ll locate this hidden place.
At a Heuriger a vintner serves his or her own wine. Most taverns offer a limited choice of hot and cold dishes. Here you find a self-service organic buffet inside, while wine is brought to you in the garden. The above picture shows one of Zawodsky’s tables in between the vineyards. On the other end of the property you get a stunning overview of Vienna or on the opposite side even more rows of grapevines. This spot is one of many reasons I love my city. Seriously, name one other metropolis on this planet where one can enjoy homemade wine in the midst of a vineyard! On top of it all: only 45 minutes by public transport away from St. Stephen’s Cathedral.
You’ll have to walk more or less 10 minutes from the closest tram stop (take line 38!) to get here, but on a sunny day you’ll want to stay forever.
