In a listed building in the 6th district, where Ludwig van Beethoven lived in an old apartment overlooking the courtyard, an old Beisl (Viennese-style pub serving food) with beautiful wood paneling has been given a new lease of life. Here, Beethoven worked on the Missa solemnis, his Symphony No. 9, and the Piano Sonata in C minor, Op. 111, among other works. Therefore, it is only logical to name a restaurant in this building after Beethoven: At Ludwig van, the top chef Walter Leidenfrost serves Viennese cuisine with a modern and often unfamiliar twist.
If you are looking for a Wiener schnitzel, however, you won’t find it at Ludwig van. Leibenfrost serves up re-designed and innovative delicacies from Viennese cuisine in a way which the locals are familiar with from top-class restaurants. Bold dishes in relaxed surroundings. Offal, typical for Viennese cuisine, always plays a minor role on the menu. Fish indigenous to Austria is always present too. Nora Kreimeyer, also known as Mamsell, takes over the cooking at lunchtimes, preparing healthy, simple dishes with a unique twist. These make for the perfect lunch on any day of the week.
