Heurigen Express

Popular name for the tram line "38" in the Austrian capital Vienna. The terminus is in Grinzing (part of the 19th district of the municipality), where many Heurigen pubs are located. In the well-known Viennese song "Heut' kommen d'Engerl auf Urlaub nach Wien" (Today the Engerl come to Vienna on holiday) this tram line is sung about. One chorus reads "What's going on today, what's going on today, there are overcrowded the 38er-Wäg'n". I'm talking about the Engerl - who take the "38er" to Grinzing to the Heurigen.
