12 - 15 March in Vienna, Austria
5th International Conference on Education and Training in Radiological Protection
ETRAP 2013 Conference Dinner, Viennese style
The Conference Dinner will take place on Thursday 14. March 2013 at a “Heuriger”, a restaurant where Viennese wine is traditionally served. Heuriger is both the term for the wine of the last grape harvest and the name of the tavern or restaurant where this wine is served. Heuriger music will add to the fun and atmosphere.
Heurigers are as much part of Vienna as the Spanish riding school or St Stephan’s cathedral. There are no less than 700 hectares of vinyards within the city limits! The Viennese wines are primarily white, with Riesling and white Burgundy varieties the most well-known. But the red wine Blaue Zwiegelt is popular too.
The many “heuriger” districts in Vienna are located in areas that are now part of Vienna, but were actually wine-growing villages until the late 19th century. The cosy Fuhrgassl-Huber tavern where the ETRAP 2013 dinner will take place has served its customers for over 30 years. The origins of the house date back to the 17th century. The hot and cold buffet will include typical Viennese delicacies, accompanied by the young, fresh white wine produced by the tavern’s own vineyards! Two musicians will introduce the Viennese music that is traditionally played at the “heurigers”.
The return bus transfer to the Fuhrgassl-Huber tavern will depart from the conference venue at 19.00.
Accompanying people are welcome to attend the Conference Dinner at an additional cost.
All ETRAP social events are included in the registration fee.
