Recommendations for Good Vienna Heurigen in Sep?

Jump to last reply

I'm going to be in Vienna for a few days during mid-week (not over a weekend) in about three weeks (second week of September), and am looking to go to a good Heuriger while I'm in town. After doing some research, it seems as if many (perhaps most?) of the heurigen located in Grinzing are very touristy, and no longer offer the best food and authentic local experiences.

I'm looking for one with good atmosphere, an attractive and vibrant outdoor terrace (wishing for nice weather), with decent food that is preferably popular with locals. The other requirement is it be easy enough to get to by train/tram from the Innere Stadt. Live music also would be nice, but might be rare to find during the mid-week. Perhaps there is an area other than Grinzing, or even in Grinzing but off the tourist path, where there are many to choose from and you could not make a bad choice. Any specific suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

A few I've found that look to be decent, clustered near each other, and close by transit stops are below, but I don't know if these are overly touristy or good? Any suggestions?

Nussdorf: Mayer am Pfarrplatz, Kierlinger, Werner Welser, and Shubel-Auer

Ottakring: 10er Marie, Herrgott aus Eta, Heuriger Sissi Huber

Mauer: Steinklammer Heuiger, Weinbau Edlmoser, Weingut Hofer - Zahel seems like it will be closed.

Grinzing: Fuhrgassl-Huber and Wolff look good, as does Sirbu in another direction, but seem harder to get to (requiring a taxi or multi km walk) from Grinzing. Any others in Grinzing I should look at?

    In Nußdorf, our personal favorite is Kierlinger; family owned and operated for several centuries. They have a nice garden, and a small interior space. Though the staff speak English, the heuriger is not (yet) touristy. Do check their hours, though, before going, and make reservations. They are steps from the terminus of the D tram.

    Schübel-Auer is on Rick Steve's hit-list, as are many in Grinzing. Mayer am Pfarrplatz is upscale and a favorite with tourists and locals. To us the service and food has become hit-or-miss in the last couple of years. We've not eaten at Werner Welser, though I wouldn't categorize that heuriger or the one adjacent (Muth) as touristy. Welser has music in the evening; Muth is known for offering interesting specials every now and again (like "Curry Week, for example, which was surprisingly delicious.)

    In Grinzing, skip Sirbu and most any heuriger within easy walking of the 38A bus or 38 Tram stops--overly touristy. Our opinion is that the while the view is beautiful, Sirbu's location and erratic hours make it not worth the effort. We have enjoyed an occasional evening at Zum Martin Sepp in Grinzing, though the atmosphere seems more upscale than Kierlinger, for example.

    Hope this helps!
