Schanigarten

We call ’em “Schanigarten” in Vienna. Those nice little, green places that pubs, restaurants and cafes open up outside their premises to give you a nice place to relax and enjoy the summer days and especially evenings. They are called “Schanigarten” because the “Schani” is the typical slow-witted, poorly payed, unskilled helper in a working area – a name having been delivered from the 19th century. I know, these gardens are nothing special or uniquely Viennese, but I think that pub owners in Vienna have a special knack for offering specially nice outside seating. Maybe you will like to try them as soon as it stops raining and the sun comes up again. Like this one:
