The 5 best burgers in Vienna

1) Weinschenke

This place used to be called Weinschenke and the name stuck, which is funny as a Weinschenke is a place to drink cheap wine and get drunk as fast as possible. But that’s their kind of humour! Not much on the menu but what you get is outstanding. And you get to sit in beautiful Karmelitermarkt.

2) Burger de Ville

Burger de Ville is a food truck in a park in front of the 25hours Hotel so it’s not open in wintertime. In summertime, however, it’s a popular spot for young people from nearby Volkstheater and MuseumsQuartier. Self-service, so just grab a jalapeño burger and find yourself a place to sit on a park bench.

3) Rinderwahn

Rinderwahn means mad cow disease. They have a great way with words here. Try their Scharfe Resi with chilli and pickles. A nice selection of craft beers, whisky and G&Ts. The Schanigarten outside was made using euro-pallets. Very laidback and easy-going.

4) Haferpoint

Haferpoint originally was a place to feed the horses. Hafer means oats. Today this bright and airy place uses 100% Austrian meat for their burgers. Order their classic, American or spicy burger. The chicken burger is also yummy. No horse burger on the menu.

5) Die Burgermacher

Some say they serve the best burgers in town here. In any event, this is Vienna’s fanciest burger joint. Very sleek, grey walls, no decoration, and some well-designed furniture. They have a nice selection of special beers (self-service too). The hipster factor is the only downside. Quite loud too.
