Welcome to Highlander

"THE HIGHLANDER" is a beer pub in the ninth district of Vienna located on the idyllic Sobieskiplatz. It was established in the year 1997.

The pub brewery with its beautiful, big outdoor dining area beneath an old sycamore tree offers excellent traditional cuisine and various vegetarian meals, as well as a wide range of different beverages.

Since the year 2000, we have been brewing three different Highlander beers in our own brewery: Lager, Märzen and stout. The brewing coppers of the brewery, visible behind our bar, add special flair to the pub.

Environmental consciousness, the use of local, organic products and fair trade products are very important to us. Besides the health benefits, this also guarantees the use of non-GMO animal feed, animal welfare and an intact environment, and the Highlander strictly adheres to these values.

We also place great importance on energy saving technologies, environmentally friendly cleaning supplies and strict waste separation. For these reasons, we have been granted the Austrian Ecolabel in the year 2001, a national label for environment and quality from the Austrian ministry for climate action, environment, energy, mobility, innovation and technology.

We also support charitable projects like the “Wiener Tafel” as well as local cultural projects like the concert series “Kunst rund um Schubert”.
