Vienna’s Heurigen

Share

If you fancy sampling some Austrian wines and a scenic excursion out of the city, take a trip to one of the wine-producing villages on Vienna’s outskirts. To the north of the Danube, Stammersdorf (tram #31 from Schottenring; 40min) is surrounded by vineyards and filled with traditional, family-run Heurigen (wine taverns). A great place to start is Wienhof Wieninger, 21 Stammersdorferstr. 78 (mid-April till mid-Dec Thurs & Fri 3pm–midnight, Sat & Sun midday till midnight; w http://www.heuriger-wieninger.at), which has a pleasant garden, a buffet and a good selection of own-label whites available by the glass.
