When the fall season arrives in Vienna, it bathes the hilly landscape in bright orange and deep red and the harvest season reaches its climax. The city’s various wine taverns, called “Heurige” are frequented again by locals and Vienna visitors.

The Viennese “Heurigen” culture dates back to 1784 when Emperor Joseph II allowed wine farmers to sell their own produce. Since that time these places offer a cozy atmosphere in secluded gardens or homely parlors together with fine local wines and tasty delicacies. The term “Heuriger” is not only referring to the tavern itself but also to the current vintage. Experience this Viennese tradition in the most authentic way and start planning your memorable excursion into the picturesque autumnal landscape of Vienna.
By tradition, guests experience “Heurigen” music when visiting Viennese wine cellars. Accompanied by an accordion, the Musicians sing about love, death and wine in Viennese dialect. This type of music is characterized by its high sincerity.
