We are in Vienna for a few days. Staying @ Renaissance Wien on Ulmannstrasse within walking distance of Schonbrunn Palace. We have 72 hr transportation passes. Would like to go to a wine garden in Vienna tonight. Trip advisor reviews of Fuhrgassl-Huber sound good but not sure if it is feasible to get there by public transportation. If not, are there other options that would be better?
The one you are considering is clear on the other side of town. Why not visit a heuriger closer to where you are staying?
For example, Heuriger 10er Marie which you can easily reach by taking the U6 to Westbahnhof and then changing to the U3 exiting at Ottakring. It is also the oldest heuriger in Vienna.
Reviews online for 10 er Marie are not the greatest. Any other suggestions for another that is easily accessible?
Since you are near Schonnbrunn, you could take the U4 to Heiligenstadt (end station). Walk out of the Heiligenstadt station to Heiligenstadter Strasse, where you can catch the D Strassenbahn (tram) to Nussdorf (last stop), where there are several heurigen, including one of our favorites -- Schubel-Auer, which I would recommend. From Schonnbrunn, this would probably take about 40 minutes total. Looking at their website, it looks like from May to October, they are closed on Mondays.
Robert—We took your advice and went to Schubel-Auer this evening. Your directions made getting there very easy. We loved it—perfect for us in every way. Wine, food, ambience. Thank you so much for sharing your input!
@Mary: So glad you enjoyed Schubel-Auer. When we lived in Vienna in the early 1990s, our other favorite heuriger was Furgassl Huber in Neustift am Walde but, as Emily said, it’s a little harder to get to from where you are staying.
