Unfortunately we went here on an evening I was not feeling that great. The food is good, the portions are huge and prices are fair. Do not expect fast service, so make sure to order when you waiter is at your table.

It's a popular tourist joint that those waiters become very arrogant and thinks their place is damn good. Not up to standard.... 5 of us there and we are not big eater, so we order 2 starter ( sausages ), 1 pork knuckles for 2 person, & 1 soup ... the waiter told us that they are doing a business...

Please do make a reservation. During the summer months, the schweizerhaus is basically always full. Understandable. Great food, lovely atmosphere. Always worth a visit. Have a stelze!

We visited this garden because our friend recommended it. The pork knuckle is famous here he said. And looking around almost every table ordered at least one of these. I thought it was OK, but nothing special. We ordered some sausages and bratwurst, these were also average. But the waiters and customer service is terrible. I will not go into... More

It is worth the hike to get here from the subway. The beer doesn't taste any better anywhere, they feature the Czech Budweiser here. Come with friends and stay awhile. The chicken was very good. Cash only.

Lovely at lunch in summer, traditional Austrian-style biergarten with the classic local dishes with busy waiters and relaxed atmosphere. Don't expect refined dishes, enjoy the very fresh pork (or other meats) dishes, mostly roasted or fried. Beers and wines are delicious. Menu only in German

90% ourdoor and located in a large park, this is a must stop place for a meal or just a few drinks with friends. No assigned seating, just find an open table and plop down, the server will be with you shortly! The pork knuckle is actually quite good, but large, share it with 1 or 2 others. Try the... More

So this place is smack dab in the middle of Prater (and open amusement park area). Which means Americans will assume it is high priced, bad quality amusement park food - it is not. Prater is an open area (no admission control or fees) and this place is masterfully done. A HUGE beer garden that offers excellent beer, great service,... More

The restaurant is very nice. The athmosfere is good, beer veey good and the food very traditional. We fell like being in the old town of Vienna when the carriages stroll around the Prater park.

Staying in Leopoldstadt

Neighborhood Profile
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 center and take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old townhouses, churches, theaters, discount shops and ethnic restaurants. Head for Augarten via Karmelitermarkt, Leopoldstadt’s trendy marketplace. Baroque Augarten itself hosts a bizarre mix of manicured hedges and flowerbeds in front of a colossal World War II defense tower, the publicly accessible 300-year-old Augarten porcelain manufactory, the palatial boarding school and funky concert hall of the Vienna Boys Choir, and the modern art museum TBA21. At its opposite corner, The Prater not only houses the Giant Ferris Wheel but blends a bustling amusement park with lush woodland, perfect for a bike tour. Further east is the old derby racing ground of Krieau.
