Culinary Style

A Tafelspitz is a Tafelspitz and a Wiener Schnitzel a Wiener Schnitzel.
It sounds simple but it is one of the great secrets of the Viennese cuisine: simple, pure, authentic food which tastes just as it should.

Historical House

The history of the house dates back to the 12th century. First built in 1180 as Berghof, the Pfarrwirt is considered to be one of the most precious art historical buildings in Vienna. Next to St.Jacobs Church with its Roman basements, the medieval house is situated on a hill and offers an enchanting view over the nearby Danube. Despite numerous reconstructions, the excellently preserved stone portals and windows reveal traces from the 14th century.

The famous “Red Chalk Drawings,” just next to the entrance, date back to the 15th century and are regarded as being of unique quality in Vienna.

Work of Art

To complement the historic building stock and valuable architecture, the individual rooms have been furnished with paintings, art objects and wall tapestries.

In the entrance area opposite the bar you will find a “Snare picture” by Daniel Spoerri.

The inventor of “Eat Art” first created an object from the leftovers of a meal in 1958, and Spoerri saw the eaten table as a symbol of sensual, vital, ephemeral moments and thus a Memento Mori produced by life itself.

In 2008, the Pfarrwirt received Daniel Spoerri’s “Snare picture”. It was Spoerri’s first art action in Vienna since the 1970s.

Play Garden

Our youngest guests can have fun while visiting Mayer’s play garden, just around the corner.

With the newly adapted and enlarged playground in Mayer’s guest garden on Pfarrplatz, we offer our little guests a very special kind of fun.

The playground is open daily (during our operating hours) in good weather and of course free of charge for our guests.
