“Go For a Walk and Dinner in Grinzing You probably don’t know that Vienna is the only metropolis with significant vineyard operations within the city limits. The wine taverns in Vienna are named “Heurige” and are located in charming neighborhoods that have maintained their village character. These areas are easily accessible by public transport from the city center and they border the Vienna Woods, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve with clearly marked walking and hiking routes. Grinzing is the most famous of the Viennese wine villages, is reachable from the Schottentor station in the city center via tram line number 38. Heuriger restaurants are everywhere in Grinzing and you can enjoy new wine (the one from the current vintage also named “heurige”), assorted food platters, live music, and good cheer But before you visit one of these restaurants you can work up an appetite by hiking to Kahlenberg or the Leopoldsberg. Although tiny for everybody else’s standards except for the locals’, Vienna’s most famous hills allow for enchanting vistas over the city and the Danube basin as far as Bratislava. If you’re on the lazy side, bus number 38A takes you from Grinzing to the top of the hills such that you can walk your way back through astonishing panoramas, vine covered slopes, and more Heuriger hidden among vineyards. Finally, for the super lazy ones, the Vienna Heurigen Express offers a round trip of the area in a hop on hop off system, so you can enjoy the charming villages and views without too much effort.”

Pool
“Several pools with beautiful historic building, with a stunning view of the city. 19th district. Lovely grounds. Unfortunately only really reachable by car. Same entrance price as all city pools -- 5.50 for adults, 3.00 for teens and 1.80 for kids, reduced price after 13.00. Near Grinzing, so after swimming you can visit the heurigers to sample the local wine!”

“This is one of the most traditional "Heurigen" you can find in Vienna. You have all the Heurigen food there,- but if you like dumplings you have to order "Grammelknödel" or "Fleischknödel". They are fresh made and you can not find better ones all over Vienna.”
