Vienna - Wachau Valley on a Sunday

Lord Griffin | Jun 4, 2012 06:00 PM

Hi all!

I will be arriving in Vienna this Thursday afternoon. I have formed a Vienna restaurant itinerary based upon all of Sturmi's rec's (seriously just write a guide book man!) but am finding it troublesome to do the same for the Wachau valley.

The weather is best friday, but we have tickets to the Musikverein at 8:15, so I dont think we can tour the Melk abbey and then bicycle from Melk to Krems whilst taking a luxurious lunch at Jamek and still have time to make it to the concert without feeling crazy rushed and probably missing dinner. The weather is decent on Sunday, but it looks like everything is closed =(

Could you guys recommend some Heuriger's / vineyards that will be open on Sunday? Nothing super expensive, hopefully with outside seating. Maybe dinner in Krems? Is Alte Post open Sunday? Does the train back to Vienna run later in the evening?

And just for fun, comments and suggestions are appreciated on the Vienna portion:

Thursday night dinner: Phönixhof

Friday Lunch: we are touring Schonbrunn in the morning, and will want to eat before going to the cemetary, something quick and cheap, but good, cafe-ish, ideally outside seating.

Friday Dinner: Rudi's Beisl before Musikverein. Will we need reservations at 6?

Saturday Lunch: Trzesniewski or Zum Schwarzen Kameel

Saturday Dinner: Zum Finsteren Stern after Belvedere. I know its not right by, but I want to try some "new viennese cuisine" that is still reasonable in price and quality.

Sunday: Wachau Valley

Monday Lunch: Nashmarkt

Early monday Dinner: we are leaving at 6pm on an overnight train to Sarajevo... any good food for a quick dinner next to the train station?

Thanks so much everyone!
