Just look for anyone open: "Heuriger (Buschenschank)" Top 5 Page for this destination Rust Restaurant Tip by lotharlerch

Rust Restaurants: 13 reviews and 23 photos


"Ausg'steckt" is of course not the name of any Heuriger (or Buschenschank) but you should nevertheless in every wine town or village in Lower Austria, Burgenland or Styria and even some outskrits of Vienna look out for the big boards with this title. They list all the Heurige around which are open the actual day. You can identify the open ones also by a bush of branches ("Buschen") hanging above the entrance door - therefore in some areas, in particular in Burgenland and Styria, they are named Buschenschank. There are enough of them in Rust so you will always find enough of them open. The best time for a Heurigen is the late afternoon and early evening.

The Heurigen are based on a historical privilege which allows the producers of wine to sell a limited number of days their own wine and food they produced themselves and pay less taxes for it.

In warm weather you sit normally in a nice garden.

If you happen to see a Tourist bus parking outside a Heurigen it is better not to enter. Just look for an other one.

Favorite Dish: Favorite Dish: "Heuriger" is the name of the youngest wine, from 11 Novmber onwards the wine of the running year. To the wine you get tasty local snacks which are mostly produced at the same farmstead.

This limited but often very nice selection should normally be clearly cheaper than in a restaurant or Gasthaus.
