Augustinerkeller Bitzinger

In the heart of Vienna, right beneath the Albertina, this former monastery cellar serves traditional Viennese cuisine, Austrian wines and draft beer along with traditional Viennese Heuriger music. Guests can enjoy the unique atmosphere of the well-preserved vaulted ceiling of the cellar.


The Austrian capital has a rich choice of great restaurants: from gourmet dining establishments perfect before (or after) a night at the opera to down-to-earth local eateries. First time visitors simply must try a hearty Kaisersemmel, traditional Viennese bread, or a Kaiserschmarrn, Austrian chopped pancakes dusted with powdered sugar. Vienna is the only metropolis in the world that grows a significant enough amount of wine within city limits, so prepare to find plenty of good local wines to match your Viennese dinners. The most popular time for dinner in Vienna is around 7 or 8 pm, so if that's when you plan to sit down for your dinner meal — book a table in advance.
