Wine tasting tours and wine bars or Heurigers - how does wine tasting work in Vienna?

by jennleauva

We are traveling to Vienna Sept 27-Oct 1 and would like to try Austrian wine. I believe Vienna is a good location, correct?

However, I am having trouble figuring out where to wine taste. Is it mostly outside of the City or can I use public transit to reach many places? I have read about Heurigers - is this the same as an American winery? Do many offer wine tasting (and how much do they generally charge)?

Also - are there any good wine bars or places in or near Vienna to get a drink and/or dinner? I've read about Grinzing but it sounds touristy? I realize I am a tourist but I want to experience some authenticity on this trip. Could you please direct me to a few places to visit both during the day and for dinner in or near Vienna (at least within walking distance or on a public rail line)?

Are any of the "wine tours" worth going on or should I just explore on my own?

Thanks.

An evening at a heuriger is quite a different experience from visiting an American winery. Strictly speaking, a heuriger will serve only its own wine (only the current year's vintage) and provide a buffet of food in a rustic setting, usually with live music of some sort. There are any number of them on the outskirts of the city, accessible by public transport or a longish evening stroll. Some are very touristy, others not so. Genuine heuriger display a green fir branch (the Buschen) on the door along with an official green-and-white sticker. They're mostly open in the late afternoon from about 3-4 to 11 or 12, opening and closing earlier on Sunday.

Stadtheuringer are similar establishments within the city. Take a look at

for a very untouristy heuriger and the city's oldest stadtheuriger

Europeans tend not to be as snobbish as North Americans when it comes to wine. Wine is just part of life and you drink it with / without meals at home and in restaurants. While I did not visit any Heurigers in Austria, I have been to the wine areas near Bingen in Germany (Bingen is apparently where the English word "binge" comes from), where these types of establishments are called "Strausse".

For lack of a better description, they are wine pubs or wine taverns. Wooden benches, shared by a number of patrons in typical local fashion. The particular one I visited served wine in pitchers, although you could also order wine by the glass. The wines served are young wines, i.e. the current year's production, and are not particularly complex. The ones I had were quite acidic. Simple pub fare foods (breads, sausages, etc.) would also be served. Many will also serve a Schorle or Spritzer - half wine, half mineral water.

Enjoy!

Travel Tips for Vienna

Before Sunrise

by eleanorbueza

"I like this Viennese variation of the bum," said the American boy to the French girl. (Before Sunrise)

You haven't experienced perfection until you arrive in Vienna, where the buildings, culture, music, and art are timeless. Everything seems well planned, in its proper place, clean and rich, where even the homeless and gypsies will write poems, play violins, wear Mozart costumes or dance for generous donations from tourists.

Accomodating Me...

by coceng

The plan was : For the first 2 nights, I would be staying at Joe's place & he would have some plans to show me around the great sights at night !
The next 2 nights, I would be staying with Axel with his own plans to show me the areas around Vienna.
It was an excellent plan !
Nevertheless, just after we had the breakfast on that FIRST day, Axel would be taking me in his car to have a super great excursion around Wienerwald & The Danube Valley !
Mega excellent !
Along the way, I called another Viennese, who's also a VT member : Matthias !OUR EXCURSION STARTED IN WIENERWALD...[Click on Wienerwald to jump right into the first photo on our excursion].

Die Donau (The Danube)

by Fam_Stoica

The Danube (ancient Danubius, German Donau, Slovak Dunaj, Hungarian Duna, Serbo-Croatian and Bulgarian Dunav, Romanian Dunarea, Ukrainian Dunay) is second longest river in Europe and one of the principal transportation arteries on the continent. It rises in the Black Forest region of Germany and flows in a generally easterly direction for a distance of about 2850 km, emptying, on the Romanian coast, into the Black Sea.

The Danube was regulated in 1870-1875 (result : the main river of today) and in 1972-1987 (results : the New Danube - Neue Donau and the Danube Island - Donauinsel).

by iavormar

Visit Kunsthaus Wien (for a pre-look :-))) go to: http://www.vienna.cc/english/hundertwasserhaus1.htm ), and if you like the art of Hundertwasser you can vist also Fernwaerme. Infact it is a factory which uses garbage to heat water and then they use the hot water for heating one of the biggest Hospitals in Europe, called Allgemeines Krankenhaus (AKH). Then don't miss the Karlskirche at Karlsplatz (at the picture) and the Johan Strauss Monument in Stadtpark. The last one could be seen live through web cam at http://www.wien.at

Some tips ...

by ErinInMD

Just some things that I picked up when I was there, things I read in travel books, and tips I found through VT:

- When you're on the escalator - stand on the right. There are signs to remind you to do it and if you don't, you'll have some annoyed people behind you trying to get by.

- When you're walking around town and want to cross the street, pay attention to the pedestrian light. If it's red, stay put. Even if you don't see a car anywhere in sight. It took a good day or two to get used to that. In the States, we're so used to crossing even if a car is coming!

- Don't stand on the grass. You'll see signs everywhere stating this. If I had grass that looked like Vienna's I'd be having signs in my lawn too!

- Starting to eat or drink before others are ready is impolite.

- Austrians eat in the continental style, with the fork in the left hand and the knife in the right. I tried to practice that before I came out to Vienna and failed miserably!

- It is polite to say cheers (prost in German) and clink glasses before taking a drink when you are having wine or beer. It's considered rude to not make eye contact with the person that you are clinking glasses with as you are saying cheers.
