Located in Vienna's green belt, Plachutta's Grünspan offers all Plachutta-signature-dishes: boiled beef, Wiener Schnitzel and other traditional Austrian specialities. Food is very good, service is ok. Best is the beautiful beer-garden outside.

If you want to enjoy a more delightful atmosphere than in the very centrally located Plachutta, you might want to take the drive outside to Ottakring for this Location. The interior is nice - fireplace in winter, "Gastgarten" (outdoor tables) in summer. Be aware that...More

The production site of popular Ottakringer beer brews
up an exciting mix of working and middle class
suburbs, Balkanese immigrant lifestyles, and lush
patches of hilly woodland. The recently gentrified
area around Yppenplatz and Brunnenmarkt boasts hip
cafés and bars next to South East European delicacies
at Brunnenmarkt street market. The dynamics of
Ottakring become most apparent at its vibrant high
