A Beer Garden in Vienna and a Linky

 


The Schweizerhaus is a well-known restaurant and beer garden situated in Vienna's large public park called the Prater. Its origins supposedly go back as far as 1766 when it was known as the Schweizer Hütte (Swiss lodge). When we arrived, the place was packed. Thankfully, we were allowed to eat at a booked table in the beer garden, so long as we left before the time of the reservation. It rained a bit but we were protected by the umbrella over our table. It was fun seeing what other people ordered as the food and beer were carried out.

We ate traditional dishes. Most interesting were the Knödel (bread dumplings), which are pressed into loaves and sliced. They are pictured in the last two dishes. My mom took the pic of me, Amanda, and Robbie under the Schweizerhaus sign. My mom has many happy memories at Prater and this restaurant, so it was important for her that we experience it too. I wish we were there now, but alas, we are home in South Africa and Amanda is back in school. Fun times are over. 😂

A Traditional Austrian Restaurant and a Linky


We enjoyed this traditional Austrian restaurant in Vienna so much that we went twice. Usually, when we ate out, my mom and stepdad paid. We contributed to other meals. These photos are from both evenings at Reinthaler's Beisl. The first time we sat in the front, and it was my mom, Amanda, Hubby, and me. The second time we sat in the back, and my stepdad, my brother, and his fiance joined us.

Eating Out in Vienna and a Linky


We ate out several times while visiting Vienna. Hubby took the photo of us eating at the restaurant, Reinthaler. That's his plate of food at the end, and that's my mom and stepdad. We almost always chose traditional Austrian dishes. Amanda was the only one who had space for dessert.

It was nice to share Vienna with my husband and our youngest daughter, Amanda. She was at the right age to be able to enjoy everything. Samantha also came to Vienna for the second week that we were there. It was special for the sisters to be together for a week. I shared a picture of her in a previous post, Visiting the Cemetery in Vienna.
