The Taubenkobel is making a stopover at the “Lokvogel”.

This year, Barbara Eselböck and Alain Weissgerber are attracting connoisseurs to the old Wolfganggasse depot in Vienna’s Meidling district with their pop-up restaurant “Lokvogel”.

For over 20 years, the Eselböck family has been providing exquisite cuisine that impresses with its down-to-earth quality at Taubenkobel. The restaurant near Lake Neusiedl serves up unique dishes featuring ingredients from the Pannonian region.

For the third year in a row, Taubenkobel will head to Vienna and this year will grace the old Wolfganggasse depot in Meidling under the name Lokvogel. Behind brick walls that are over 100 years old, an empty industrial hall will be turned into a one- of-a-kind restaurant in just three months. From 16 November to 23 December 2018, the old depot will be transformed into the Lokvogel, which promises a very special experience for gourmets.

Allow yourself to be taken on a culinary journey of the highest order with Alain Weissgerber’s international cuisine and to be inspired by your hostess and guide for the journey, Barbara Eselböck. The venue will feature an art project under the name “Es geht um die Wurst #FRIEDEN”, a larger-than-life dove of peace (peace = Frieden in German) that will hover above the guests’ heads clutching the eponymous sausage (or Wurst in German) in its claws as opposed to an olive branch.

Time: From 6:00 pm
Location: Wolfganggasse depot, Eichenstraße 2, 1120 Vienna
