Lusthaus

Austrian in Prater & East of the Danube

A stroll along the Prater's chestnut-shaded avenues works up an appetite for all-Austrian grub at this former 16th-century Habsburg hunting lodge. The pavilion was rebuilt in 1783 to host imperial festivities and the like. Today it shelters a chandelier-lit cafe and restaurant serving classics like beef broth with sliced pancakes, Wiener schnitzel and Marillenknödel (apricot dumplings).
