I have been here 4 or 5 times in the past 2 years - both when it has been very quiet and crazy busy. Getting seating always seems to work out when busy and the staff are efficient and friendly. The food is quite good...More

Schweizerhaus is heaven on planet Earth. I cannot say enough good things about this place. You really just have to experience it for yourself. Get the pork knuckle and beer. Drink a lot of beer. I want to go back so bad.

Typical Austrian - German pub environment. Must order dishes - The pork knuckles - can be shared between 2-3 people, sauerkraut, horseradish, potato salad, and of course, the beers! They also have chicken and fish!

Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The
second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from
medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from
pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current
hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative
crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city centre and
take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old
townhouses, churches, theatres, discount shops and
