Vienna Media News 06/2014 Imperial enjoyment in green Vienna

A charming restaurant in Vienna’s Prater park treats its clientèle to traditional Viennese cuisine. The Lusthaus, a former imperial hunting pavilion, serves a full selection of seasonal dishes and Viennese wines. Surrounded by horse chestnut trees, diners on the terrace can unwind as they take in the views of the tree-lined boulevards beyond. The Hermes Café Restaurant Labstelle at the Hermesvilla in the Lainzer Tiergarten can point to a similar history. This natural game reserve was once set aside for the exclusive use of imperial hunting parties. Today the restaurant sources the herbs used in its regional dishes directly from the palace gardens. 

Schönbrunn Zoo is the location of another of the city’s idyllic restaurants. Used as an opulent breakfast salon in the days of empire, the Café Restaurant Kaiserpavillon now serves classic Viennese cuisine and international favorites. Landtmann's Jausen Station in the Crown Prince Garden at Schönbrunn Palace is the perfect place to stop off and savour a snack or coffee break. Brioche croissants and a mélange coffee, cold cuts, delicious Kaiserschmarren and homemade sodas are the perfect ingredients to enjoy the Schlosspark.
