Heuriger wine taverns
Dining at a Heuriger
Hunger strikes in Burgenland by sunset at the latest, whether you fancy a really hearty snack of cold meats and cheese, bread and dripping, black pudding, or roast pork seasoned with caraway. Accompanied by a lively Welschriesling or a rich Blaufränkisch, it could be the start of a great evening in Burgenland.
You will recognise the classic Buschenchank, or roadside tavern (the original “Heuriger” wine tavern), by the pine branch or wreath depicted on a sign that is hung outside, or “ausg’steckt”.
The dishes on offer include typical Burgenland delicacies, such as bean strudel with cucumber salad, home-made brawn in vinegar and oil, a garnished taster platter, or onion-flavoured dripping and bread and dripping.
