Beer table tap systems

At the beginning of the garden season, our guests can expect a new addition to the Kolariks Luftburg. We recently have added tables equipped with a self-service tap. The beer taps can be used for meetings or parties.

True to the motto “self tapped tastes the best”, several tables in the beer garden are equipped with Redl Dispensing systems, which were built special for self-service. The beer dispenser is integrated directly into the table. A display shows the amount of beer served from the tap.

The fairy tale


Once upon a time, as in the year 1895 the brothers Ferdinand and Wilhelm Leicht bought the former restaurant “Zum schwarzen Tor” and redesigned it into a famous summer-vaudeville.

The brothers were gifted in writing Viennese songs and had a preference for play-acting, and so it happened that personalities like Raoul Aslan, Hans Moser, Girardi, or Paula Wessely appeared in plays in front of an exited Viennese audience under the still existing chestnut-trees.

After the beautiful building with its yellow planks and greenly-framed boards, was destroyed during the war, it was taken over by the family Kolarik where they built a children’s zoo. In the zoo visitors could gaze at Austria’s smallest cow, a red gilt, a mice-cage and furthermore at a brown bear, a tigress as well as a lion. The zoo offered also 4 elephants which could be rid by the guests and also the attraction “Willy der Wurm” – a playground in shape of a giant worm – was very popular amongst the Prater-visitors.

Then in the year 1992 the day had finally come, and the restaurant “Luftburg” opened its gates, to offer the Viennese people a place for a comfortable get-together. I hope that you have a pleasant time with your family, that you can enjoy our lovingly prepared meals and maybe dream about past times under our chestnut-trees…

because the Prater as well lives from nostalgia. Who knows, probably you’ll hear one or the other recite a poem or singing an old Viennese song….
I hope you will enjoy your meal,

Elisabeth Kolarik
