I come from a city in Italy where ice cream is done very well, so I feel really confident in saying that gelato from Eis Greissler in Vienna is AMAZING!!!! For abroad standard, and for any standard really!!! Gelato here is creamy and not icy. However, it is the taste the major player. Eating fruit ice cream is like eating... More

Trust me. I've eaten a lot of gelato and ice cream all over the world in my 75 years and this organic producer's product is simply the best.

This is definitely the best gelato in Vienna, even better than La Romana (and they have great gelato too). Forget all the "gelaterias" directly around Stephanplatz and try all the magnificent flavours here. The scoops are 1,50Euro, but definitely worth it. Right taste, right texture, right sweetness. Just fantastic gelato.

We stopped for a mid afternoon snack on our way back from the museum quarter. The friendly girl behind the counter offered to run through the flavours in English for me, which was so nice. They have some vegan flavours, and they currently sweeten with beet sugar. It was €1.50 for a small cup.

Went two days ago and got the raspberry ice cream in a cone. It was 1.50euro which was great, and the ice cream tasted amazing! They let you taste whichever you like before buying, and are nice and friendly.

I guess they claim that their ice cream is home made but yes Pistachios and Pumpkin seeds choice is out of the world. Sweetness is just perfect like not any other Gelatos or ice cream parlours in Vienna. A must place to visit.

There was a small queue on the pavement for this place but it moved quickly. The ice cream was delicious. You could taste the wholesomeness of the organic cream. Highly recommend it. Not much of a wait and the staff are very helpful. The flavors were in German so they gladly translated for us so that we could choose. :)

Even if their ice cream is organic and has fancy tastes, it is never worn it to stand in a line of approximately 20 people blocking the sidewalk just for a scoop of ice cream

You stand in line.... the line is shorter on rainy days and in winter. But it's always worth the wait. The tiny walk in walk out store has amazing ice cream made with organic milk and natural fresh ingredients. I particularly like the pear ice cream and an ice cream named "horse apples"- the Austrian term for... well, you know.... More
