The best Wiener Schnitzel in Vienna

Restaurants with the best Wiener Schnitzel in Vienna

Along with Kaiserschmarren (a sweet dessert that takes its name from the Austrian emperor, Franz Joseph, who was very fond of fluffy shredded pancakes, usually served with a plum compote) and Sachertorte (the famous Austrian chocolate sponge cake), the Wiener Schnitzel is one of the highlights of traditional Austrian cuisine. The original Schnitzel is prepared with veal, which is covered in a golden brown coat of flour, egg and breadcrumbs and served with lemon slices, accompanied by potatoes. It is with good reason that this dish is loved by both Austrians, as well as visitors to Vienna. This blog will provide you with a brief summary of restaurants where you can eat excellent Wiener Schnitzel

Plachutta is not only known to the Viennese, but it is also held in high esteem by visitors to the city. The well-known Plachutta quality is a synonym for excellent and traditional Viennese cuisine. There are three original Plachutta restaurants in Vienna.

It is intentional that competition should now come from within Plachutta itself. With its large guest garden, “Plachuttas Gasthaus zur Oper” is located just around the corner from the Vienna State Opera. It clearly proves what an original Wiener Schnitzel has to taste like.

The traditional Viennese restaurant, Figlmüller, first opened its doors over 100 years ago. It is well known far beyond Austria’s borders and it represents culinary Vienna like no other.

“The home of the schnitzel” is provocatively written on the restaurant’s website – and after you have taken your first bite, you know that this is really the truth. On average, the portions of this splendid dish are 30 centimetres large. In addition, Figlmüller is represented twice in Vienna. The flagship restaurant is located in the famous Wollzeile, not far from St. Stephan’s Cathedral, and a second restaurant was opened in Bäckerstraße in 2001 to accommodate the growing popularity of Figlmüller’s Schnitzel.

Figlmüller
Addresses:
Wollzeile 5, 1010 Vienna
Bäckerstraße 5, 1010 Vienna
Website: https://figlmueller.at/
Opening hours:

When Viennese coffee house culture meets Viennese cuisine, we can only be talking about Café Anzengruber. It is almost impossible to be more Viennese than here. The name is, however, a little misleading because Café Anzengruber is an all-rounder: a café, a restaurant and a bar.

The somewhat high price also delivers everything that it promises. A wafer-thin schnitzel in Viennese style is served – which means not veal, but pork – and it tastes simply delicious.

Address: Schleifmühlgasse 19, 1040 Vienna

Opening hours:
Monday – Saturday: 4pm – 2am

Founded more than 40 years ago, the two daughters today run the family restaurant as it has always been run. In addition to huge Schnitzels, the rustic restaurant also offers a large selection of traditional home cooking. Here you can enjoy genuine Viennese cuisine in authentic surroundings.

You can truly feel the historical significance of Vienna, not only in the numerous museums of the city, but also in the venerable Rüdigerhof. Built in 1902, the Rüdigerhof is now also a listed building. Due to the classical ambience and the ornate facade, the real Vienna can be felt here.

In keeping with the atmosphere, the Schnitzel served here is also classic as well as delicious. And, as it should be, they are fried in clarified butter until the breadcrumbs take on the typical golden colour. For those who have a sweet tooth, tasty desserts are also provided with the homemade pastries.

Rüdigerhof
