VIENNA, AUSTRIA--(Marketwired - May 14, 2013) - Summer's arrival can be signaled by many things, from warmer temperatures to an influx of tourists, but for residents near this hotel in Vienna, Austria, nothing quite says "summer" like the Imperial Riding School Renaissance Vienna Hotel's City Barbecue.

Through September 13, 2013, the City Garden at this Vienna city center hotel becomes a meeting place for hotel guests and locals, who gather for delicious barbecue and good company in a beautiful setting. The hotel kicked off the summer with Maifest in the Garden on May 1st, when neighborhood families enjoyed live music, great food and professional childcare.

At the City Barbecue, held Wednesday through Saturday from 5:30 to 10pm at this Vienna hotel near Belvedere Palace, guests can enjoy an all-you-can-eat buffet for just EUR 29,50 per person. The spread includes succulent meat specialties, fresh fish, entrecote roasted on a spit, side dishes such as baked potatoes and corn on the cob, fresh salads and delicious sauces. Those who like their meals earlier in the evening -- and half-price -- can take advantage of the Early Bird Special, offering 50% off food between 5:30 and 6pm.

While food is the foundation for the City Barbecue, the space offers an inspired setting. The large city garden is the perfect place to lose oneself on a warm summer evening. The trendy outdoor lounge is shaded by solar panels, and comfortable seating areas invite people to gather with a group of friends or make new ones. Good food, pleasant music and beautiful weather make the City Barbecue a must for both hotel guests and Vienna residents.
