Würstelstand

Würstelstand

"Sweet (süss) or spicy (scharf)?" is the standard question you might ask when ordering from a Viennese hot dog stand. This has nothing to do with making a choice between Sachertorte or Käsekrainer, but refers to your mustard preference - whether the mild sweet Kremser or spicy hot Estragon. Incidentally, the Käsekrainer is an Austrian invention and a traditional classic. It is a lightly smoked pork sausage with 10-20% cheese content. One of the popular stands is the legendary "Würstelstand am Hohen Markt" located on a traffic island in the heart of Vienna's old city. During the day it is the ideal place to grab a quick snack while shopping or sightseeing. However, it owes its cult status to its late night opening hours and the diversity of its night owl clientele. It is nothing unusual for bankers to be seen eating shoulder-to-shoulder with punks. / Copyright: WTV/Robert Osmark
