Vienna is famous for its sausages – the humble wiener was first cooked up here in Vienna and still tastes best on home territory.
For the ultimate in haute-hotdog, you want Würstelstand am Hohen Markt (Hoher Markt 1). You can’t miss this legendary stand: it’s right in the heart of Vienna’s old city, keeps long hours and is loved by everyone. Don’t be surprised to roll up at three in the morning during winter ball season and find Cinderellas dining in Vienna, street-style, here.
At the opposite end of the spectrum, fine dining in Vienna is stellar stuff.
With two Michelin stars, Steirereck im Stadtpark (Heumarkt 2A) is widely considered to be one of the world’s ten best restaurants, and a table on the terrace alone, with views over the park, is worth the price of dinner.
Another double Michelin-star delight is cosy, unpretentious Mraz & Sohn (Wallensteinstr 59) in the city centre.
If you want nothing but tradition, Anna Sacher (Philharmoniker Str 4) is as richly decadent and delicious as restaurants in Vienna come.
Vienna’s coffeehouses are the stuff of legend and, when you want the refined 19th-century variety, Innere Stadt (Old Town) is the place to go.
Freud’s old stomping ground, Café Landtmann (Universitätsring 4) is nearly as popular as Café Mozart (Albertinaplatz 2) and hot-chocolate lovers should pilgrimage to Demel (Kohlmarkt 14) – check out the window display.
If you’re looking to mess with tradition, hit the 2nd district. Rumour has it that the coffee houses run by the younger generation here are giving the old guard a run for their money. Try Balthaser (Praterstraße 38) or super-hip Kaffemik (Zollergasse 5) and decide for yourself.
Forget what you know about bistros and meet beisl instead.
The name comes from the Yiddish word for ‘house’ and these establishments – some of the cutest, cosiest restaurants in Vienna – specialise in hearty fare such as broth and dumplings, pancakes, pastries and stews.
When it comes to where to eat in Vienna for beisl bliss, drop in to Rebhuhn (Berggasse 24) in the 9th district for old-fashioned charm, or visit Petz im Gusshaus (Gußhausstraße 23) in the 4th district for Austrian comfort food at its finest.
