Restaurant tip of the month

A personal recommendation from our Hotel Manager Ingeborg Seitz is:

Das Glashaus
Am grünen Prater 11
Mo-Fr 11:30h-23:00h
Sa-So 09:00-15:00h Brunch only

How to get there: Take the U2 to the “Krieau” station and then it’s a short walk. The restaurant has a great location with a view of the Vienna trotting track (tip: make a reservation upstairs) and is bright and friendly. The employees are super friendly and accommodating and the food is not run of the mill. Particularly great: the table brunch on the weekend wieh "free flow Prosecco". To get back to the hotel, we recommend taking a walk through the Vienna Prater (this takes about 35 minutes).

Wienerisch für Anfänger ;-)

Heute lernen wir, das ein Pfosten ist! Ein Pfosten (sprich Pfostn) ist einer, der nicht gerade mit einer raschen Auffassungsgabe gesegnet ist und auch sonst nicht besonders intelligent ist. Der Superlativ wäre dann Voipfostn. Das Wiener Orignal, Mundl Sackbauer, erklärt es sehr verständlich in diesem Video
