The Dornbacher Pfarrer opens again
Quite near to the apartments you can find a wine tavern that has even got its own Wienerlied (Viennese song) and is well known far beyond the borders of Hernals: The Dornbacher Pfarrer.
In one of my previous blog posts I've already told you a little bit of the wine taverns in our neigbourhood. The Dornbacher Pfarrer is one of them and is open again (in German: hat ausgesteckt) from 4.9 - 14.9 and you definitely should go there.
A wine tavern with history
If you look you back in history, you can find reports on the abbey of St. Peter, the tavern belongs to a parish(yes that's where the name comes from), already in 1042. Almost 100 years later the chapel was consecrated in Dornbach and since then was allowed to give away the Abbey's wine twice a year the so-called "Fronwein".
Over the next centuries the manor had a moving story, which you can find on the website of the estate administration.
Today a well known place to meet in the suburbs
And today? Even today the monastery of St. Peter produces its own wine directly from the vineyars in Hernals. If you walk a little bit in the direction out of town, at the end of Alszeile you see on the right side a beautiful large vineyard. Here, the raw material of the wine comes from, which you can then taste in Dornbacher Pfarrer.
So just enjoy beautiful courtyard, plentiful delishous food and a fine wine. And if you want to know more about this famous wine tavern, just look at the website of the monastery of St. Peter.
