Vienna-which tourist choices (?) and recommend ation for restaurants

We will be on a tour in Vienna for a very short time--appreciate any suggestions as to which is the most impressive optionals or must see on our own: Grinzing Wine Village, Hofburg Palace or Schonbrunn Palace? Any recommendations for restaurants that will not require formal dress in evening?

Hi Sharon -

If you do a search here on Vienna you'll be absolutely covered up with info!

The places mentioned are certainly "must do's" ... make sure you visit the Crown Jewels at Hofburg...

A good choice for dinner is Paulsstauben ... about a block from the Opera house... right behind the metro station exit... best viennerschnitzel we had on our March trip!

When I asked the hotel staff where to eat weinerschnitzel, they said Figlmullers. It is just off from Stephensplatz and the weinerschnitzel is larger than your plate. Caution though that smoking/non smoking sit together.

I second the Figlmullers suggestion. It's the best weiner schnitzel in Austria. If you are with someone, order one and share it...and each get a mixed salad...it's nice to get your greens when you are surrounded by so much meat!
Schonnbrunn Palace should not be missed.

Restaurants that I would recommend are:

Griechenbeisl, 11 Fleischmarkt (http:// http://www.tourist-net.co.at/lokale/...sl/index_e.htm). Steeped in history; typical Viennese food too.

Palmenhaus, 1, Burggarten/entrance Goethegasse. Expensively renovated palmhouse with a restaurant and bar. In the summer you can sit outside.

Also, lunch or coffee and pastry at Cafe Central, 14 Herrengasse, in the Palais Ferstel. A wonderfully elegant glimpse into 19th-centry Vienna. Closed Sunday.

Cafe Demel, 14 Kohlmarkt, is not to be missed. Famous for their pastries. Also have tea sandwiches. Open daily.

I would second Griechenbeisl. It serves traditional food with a contemporary twist in some cases. Atmospheric -- all in all a nice experience.
