Now that the flowers and trees are starting to blossom, take a little “spring break”!
Off the beaten track, in one of Vienna’s most scenic settings, you can find this romantic “Heuriger”, a wine tavern. Grinzing is well known by tourists who arrive here to enjoy the typical Austrian experience, yet it is more than unlikely they will locate the hidden gem that Zawodsky is.
At a Heuriger vintner they only serve wine they produced themselves. Most taverns offer a limited choice of hot and cold dishes – here they have a self-service organic buffet inside, while wine is brought to your table in the garden. In the picture above, a little bit further to the left you can get a stunning overview of Vienna while sitting right next to grapevines. This spot is one of many reasons why I love my city. Seriously, name another 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 there, but on a sunny day you’ll want to stay forever.
