Networking is a major benefit of the TopSafe 2017 conference. The social events help connect the conference delegates and are included in the registration fee.
The Welcome Drink will take on Sunday 12 February 2017 in the ‚Augustinerkeller‘, one of the last monastery cellars in the historic city center of Vienna. We would like to invite pre-registered TopSafe 2017 Delegates as from 18.00h to network and enjoy traditional Viennese hospitality in the ‘Vinothek’ of this traditional restaurant.
How to get there
The Conference Dinner will take place on Tuesday 14 February 2017 at the Fuhrgassl-Huber, a “Heuriger” 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.
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 TopSafe 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!
The return bus transfer to the Fuhrgassl-Huber tavern will depart in front of the IAEA at 19.00 (Gate 1).
