WHERE TO FIND HEINZ FIS­CHER IN FE­BRU­ARY

METROPOLE - Vienna in English - - MELANGE -

LAINZER TIERGARTEN

This vast na­ture pre­serve in the 13th district en­com­passes nearly 25 square kilo­me­ters of wood­lands, fields and hik­ing trails. Fis­cher grew up in Hi­et­z­ing and learned to ski on the nearby Roter Berg; the area evokes fond mem­o­ries of his child­hood. lainzer-tiergarten.at

SCHNATTL

Fis­cher loves the 8th district. It’s where he and his wife have lived for decades, vis­ited the The­ater in der Josef­s­tadt and strolled along Lange Gasse. Come din­ner­time, Fis­cher’s venue of choice is this beloved Gasthaus, renowned for its in­ven­tive ren­di­tions of Styr­ian spe­cial­ties. schnattl.com

KERN BEISL

This rus­tic tav­ern in the 1st district right off Tuch­lauben is one of Fis­cher’s fa­vorite haunts, both for the food, and also just for meet­ing with friends and col­leagues. The menu seem­ingly has not been up­dated since the 1990s, which adds to its no-non­sense charm. kern­beisl.at

AUS­TRIAN NA­TIONAL LI­BRARY

On Fe­bru­ary 22, the “trea­sury of knowl­edge” will be cel­e­brat­ing its 650th birth­day with a grand cer­e­mony; Fis­cher will at­tend, along with cur­rent Pres­i­dent Alexan­der Van der Bellen. All year, the na­tional li­brary will have spe­cial events sur­round­ing the an­niver­sary year. oenb.at
