The place to be for young and old in the historic center of Vienna
Enjoy the historic ambience of the year 1339 and the diversity of Viennese cuisine based on old recipes and let yourself be enchanted by our selected, quality wines.
Our cuisine: Traditional Austrian
Our menu offers an extensive selection of traditional Austrian dishes.
We serve original “Wiener Schnitzel Kaiser Art" and “Tafelspitz” (traditional boiled beef). The classic “Fiakergulasch” (beef goulash with sausages and fried egg) is one of our specialties and tastes great with a good beer.
Viennese cuisine is also well known for its tasty desserts. We offer a variety of sweets and deserts such as “Apfel,- und Topenstrudel” (apple and cheese curd strudel) as well “Powidltascherln” (dumplings filled with plum jam) and “Kaiserschmarren” (shredded pancake).
Our Ingredients: 100% Austrian
High quality produce and ingredients are part of our values. We source our products exclusively from regional businesses that are known for their high quality and sustainability.
For all our traditional recipes we use top quality regional and seasonal products.

Our Wines: Typically Austrian
We offer an extensive range of local wines. Our indigenous white wine varieties are “Grüner Veltliner”, “Welschriesling”, “Gelber Muskateller” as well as the “Gemischter Satz” (special Viennese wine).
We also offer a variety of red wines such as “Blaufränkischer”, “St. Laurent” and “Zweigelt”.
Among the many delicacies, it is undoubtedly the “Ribiselwein” (red current wine) that has achieved the greatest fame. Hermito of Doderer, an Austrian author who published the novel “Strudelhofstiege” (The Strudelhof Steps) obtained his fame thanks to this special wine.
The 12 Apostelkeller: well known all over the world
Our long time serving staff and our own music band who play “Heurigenmusik” (traditional Austrian music) will make sure that you will have an unforgetable cosy stay in wine tavern atmosphere. The 12A is well known for Viennese hospitality - even beyond the borders of Austria.
