Are you looking for an original and typical Viennese wine tavern (Heurigen)? We found a great place where you can not only enjoy typical Viennese food and excellent wine, but also listen to original Viennese songs every Tuesday!
Heurigen Hengl Haselbrunner is located in Grinzing, the home of a great number of wineries. Various musicians offer particular programmes, shows or simply sit and jam, as they chat and drink along!:-) On some evenings the owner of the Heurigen joins them and sings with them.
