One million guests so far: The traditional restaurant Himmelpforte located at the Himmelpfortgasse 24 in Vienna’s first district has really many reasons to celebrate. This large number of guests speaks for itself – to the well-known quality of the Himmelpforte kitchen. The restaurant is not that old, but it is still considered a traditional “secret” in the Viennese restaurant scene.
But now everything in order. We have summarized the Himmelpforte-story for you:
The history of one of the most legendary restaurants in Vienna began in September 1996 with the adaptation of the premises, from September to October, the basement in Himmelpfortgasse 24, 1010 Vienna, completely rebuilt, brought to the latest technical standards and visually the typical “Viennese flair” styled. The restaurant cellar offers space for 140 people and is also ideal for group and corporate events. From 1999 tour operators became aware of the restaurant. Thus, with great success, international guests – above all Asians and Spaniards – have become satisfied regular customers, which also speaks for the Himmelpforte.
Due to the constantly good occupancy of the restaurant, in 2006 and 2007 it was again necessary to renovate the entire premises in order to offer the usual high standard of service and ambience for the guests.
