A very old house, first mentioned in documents from 1447, and has ever since been a restaurant or ?a public house? under various names. It has many small vaulted rooms, upstairs and downstairs. The name ?Griechenbeisl? is derived from the Greek merchants that settled in the 'Fleischmarkt' (Meat Market) and frequented this place. 'Griechenbeisl' has been the meeting place of many great artists, scientists and politicians - Beethoven, Schubert, Strauss, Mark Twain, Grillparzer etc. It has been proved that Mark Twain wrote his story 'The Million Dollar Note' in one of the rooms in Griechenbeisl.

Favorite Dish: Wiener schnitzel, Apfelstrudel.

Address: Fleischmarkt 11.
