Conference Dinner

on July 7, 2016
Time: 7.30 p.m. – 11.00 p.m.

“Ausg'steckt is”

In Vienna, “Heuriger” is the name for the wine harvested in the previous year and also for the inns where it is sold. “Gemma zum Heurig'n” (= let's go to the Heurigen) is an invitation to a casual get-together in the afternoon or evening with old style music and white wine providing a convivial spirit. Although the typical wine producing locations in Vienna are situated within the city, in most cases they have the character of charming villages, e.g. Neustift, Heiligenstadt or Grinzing.

Spend a few hours with great company, white wine and hearty food. The bus transfer back to the hotel is at approximately 11 pm.
