Vienna is known for its famous Heurigen restaurants, traditional taverns serving local wine and hearty food, often accompanied by live Viennese music. The district of Grinzing is full of such establishments, most of which are beautifully preserved and lend the whole district a magical feel. Authentic Heurigen taverns hang a branch of pine above the door to indicate the sale of home-made wine. Traditionally, these taverns are small, intimate, and inexpensive. Numerous vineyards are located nearby and make a great place for a walk. Follow in the footsteps of Franz Schubert and Ludwig van Beethoven, who both found inspiration in the (then unspoiled) surrounding nature. Composer Gustav Mahler is buried in Grinzing Cemetery.

Take a basket of wine, cheese and bread and bask in the magnificenc and tranquility the Austrian hillsides have to offer.
