The history of the "Pfudl"

For more than 100 years, the Pfudl family has been indulging their guests with authentic cooking of the old Austrian monarchy on the very spot where you can find "The Pfudl", as we call it, today. "The Pfudl" has always been known for excellent food, a pleasant ambience and a warm welcome to everybody: the rich as well as the poor, young and old, families, students, workers, artists and guests from all over the world.

While the official history of "The Pfudl" goes back to the year 1900, latest research shows, that maybe the Pfudl family has been in Vienna for a much longer time. It seems as if in 1529, a 10-year old boy named Rudi Pfudl came to the City, fleeing the approaching troops of Sultan Süleyman I. and helping to defend the City as a spotter. Later, Rudi Pfudl seems to have made use of his familiy-ties and made a business out of bringing wine from his home Mailberg in Lower Austria to Vienna.

While we are working to uncover the details, come and join us for a fulfilling experience in every sense of the word. And if you concentrate and listen carefully, maybe you can hear the stories the walls and tables at "The Pfudl" can tell.
