12 idyllic, quiet spots – Vienna’s top “Schanigärten”

Beautiful yet hidden open-air dining areas

5. Weinstube Josefstadt

The small but delightful Weinstube Josefstadt with its gorgeous outdoor dining area in the interior courtyard is situated in the heart of the 8th district. Here, you will find both well-priced Heurigen (wine tavern) specialities as well as a traditional Austrian-style buffet of cold cuts. On the drinks side of things, the restaurant exclusively serves Austrian wine and it’s worth making a reservation, as this wine tavern is highly popular.
