The Spittelberg area (Seventh District) is dotted with bars, including the perennially popular Amerlingbeisl, with its leafy garden. This relaxed pub is a must-go in Vienna, especially around Christmas, when Spittelberg comes alive with its famous Christmas market. In the evenings, you can zip a cup of ginger-apricot punch in Amerlingbeisl's canopied atrium with fairy lights for stars.
