A Heuriger is a traditional, casual Viennese tavern, where local wine and simple but tasty Austrian food is served. Experience the legendary comfortable atmosphere of laughter and fun as it is suitable for the scholarly traditions in this typical Viennese Heurigen, which has been in the family of Werner Welser for 250 years. As it might get chilly in the evening we will be sitting inside, but there will be tables outside in the garden where you can take your glass and have a chat with colleagues under grape wines.
