The conference dinner will take place at Heuriger "10-er Marie" at Mayor Michael Häupl's invitation.
„10-er Marie“ is one of the oldest „Heurige“ in Vienna, founded in 1740.
What does "Heuriger" mean? "Heurig" stands for "current" in German. Thus, "Heuriger" does not just describe the tavern itself, but also the wine from the current vintage, which – in accordance with tradition – may be so-called only until November 11th (St. Martin's Day); then the season stops and you will not get any "heurigen" wine anymore. Mostly locals drink this pleasant and light wine by the glass or mixed with soda water (called "Spritzer"). The wines are reflecting the regions richness and variety, as well as the special Viennese climate, which is so favourable to grow this excellent quality of wine.

The Conference dinner will take place at "Restaurant Augarten" at the OeNB's invitation.
The history of Augarten ("garden on the flood plain") dates back to 1614 when Emperor Matthias had a small hunting lodge built on the previously unspoiled flood plain. During the following 150 years this private imperial hunting park was extended several times but was ravaged in 1683 during the Second Siege of Vienna.
The building in the middle of the park, known nowadays as Augarten Palace, is the former suite of concert rooms of Emperor Ferdinand the Third's pleasure pavilion called Alte Favorita and where Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Ludwig van Beethoven conducted the famous morning concerts from 1782 and 1792 respectively.
Café Restaurant Augarten is located in Augarten Palace in the middle of the oldest baroque garden in Vienna and is a tranquil, romantic spot in the middle of a bustling city and affords the visitor peace, relaxation and comfort.
