We have heard so much about this restaurant when we when to Vienna and we knew we must try it as part of our sightseeing. We went in during the morning so we can reserve a table because it is a must !! If you don't have reservation here you cannot eat here !!! This just shows how popular they... More

The wiener Schnitzel is really great there. It is for sure one of the biggest you can get in town and great to eat. They are famous for it and therefore not all times possible to get a place there. But a must-do during your vienna trip.

We found Figlmuller the last time we were in Vienna. We were really looking forward to our return visit for schnitzel, and we were not disappointed. The schnitzel is pork schnitzel. It comes out really hot and very quickly after you order,and is such a large serving that it covers the entire plate. This restaurant is small, and they do... More

The famous schnitzel was amazing and huge! The salad was very good too. The service - a bit less, though... We were 20 minutes late and because of that had to wait for ten more minutes... You MUST have a reservation!

Stumbled on this place and what a good find. We've been in Vienna a week and walked by several times and thought we would give it a go. Service was professional and prompt, dress was casual, ambience had a nice buzz about it. Don't confuse that with noisy. It is definitely family friendly as we had a group of four... More

I ate the best (and biggest) Wiener Schnitzel here I've ever had, and I am Austrian. Speaking of, there are not many Austrians visiting this place it seems, mostly tourists, but it doesn't matter. You definitely need a reservation, but with my reservation we were seated promptly. Even though it was full to burst, it did not seem hectic, and... More

I was skeptical. There where signs on the hostel advising to book in advance (maybe 48h in advance). When I finally decided to go, I went there by myself, without a reservation. The hostess was kind enough to place me on a table with 2 other people that were also there without reservation. The schnitzel is their specialty. It is... More

First day in Vienna...what dumb luck to happen upon the 110 years old Figlmuller, which was packed at 11:30 am for lunch and some without reservations left salivating. Do get the potato salad. If you do not have a place to store the remainder of your humongous schnitzel, and you are a normal eater, you can split one order. Lovely... More

This place is regarded as the best schnitzel so I had to try it for myself. I had the wein schnitzel which comes in two massive breaded patties. Overall pretty good but I've had better schnitzel.

Thank Sal 6

Auf die Speisekarte des Figlmüller Wollzeile gehören auch andere Klassiker der österreichischen Küche wie Wiener Tafelspitz mit Schnittlauchsauce, Apfelkren und Rösterdäpfel oder Kalbsrahmgulasch mit Butternockerln. Von den 13 Gerichten auf der Karte wird aber meistens nur eins geordert. Das Figlmüller Schnitzel ist ausschließlich von der Karreerose, wird auf einen Durchmesser von etwa 30 cm geklopft und in Brösel von der Kaisersemmel paniert.

Neighborhood Profile
Old University Quarter
North of St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Vienna suddenly turns small, winding and medieval, opening up to legendary places such as the Basilisk sculpture at Schönlaterngasse, as well as glamorous baroque façades, courtyards and churches. Take 45 minutes for a casual stroll through Bäckerstrasse, Sonnenfelsgasse, Köllnerhofgasse, Grashofgasse, and Schönlaterngasse. This quarter is packed with stories and legends that will enrich your Vienna experience.
