Great place for little snack

Was nice to be here for a quick bite. Traditional place and nice selection. Just in old centre and easy to find. Will recommend this place!

Trzesniewski is a famous sandwich shop in the very heart of Vienna. At Trzesniewski Buffet sandwiches in finger-food proportion are offered and guests can select of twenty-two different toppings. It is a tradition to drink Pfiff - this is the smallest mug of beer - wine or soft drinks. There is only little space but very popular. A must while... More

My title says it... well worth visiting, the place is interesting and great to stop by for a snack but the food just wasn't my thing. Our party was split 50/50 of those who thought it was awesome and those who thought it was just ok. The open sandwiches look very nice, pretty and what not, but the flavours can... More

For about 1 Euro each, you can pick a plate of 3 or 4 little sandwiches to enjoy with beer, apple juice, or other beverage. The sandwiches include various combinations of fish (lox and herring) and egg salads and cream cheese, among other toppings - all in little open-face rectangles on delicious brown bread. If you want a savory snack... More

Perfect place for a snack during sightseeing. Inexpensive old-worldly small open-faced sandwiches accompanied by your selection of drink. You make your choice, pay, sit at a small table and enjoy.

This was the most fun eating experience I had in Vienna. Delicious tiny open-faced sandwiches are washed down with tiny beers called "pfiff," each priced at about one euro. You can sit at a tiny table or stand outside at a tall table which is what most Viennese tend to do in good weather. The crowd seemed to be all... More

This place was close to St Stephen's Cathedral, and I thought any place with "ski" name, must have decent food. I loved the little finger sandwiches and beverages, and ambiance! I later learned this place is a tourist spot. It's information: "Trzesniewski is an institution here in Vienna, often saluted as a city highlight in itself. The ingredients seem simple... More

Stopped by here on the recommendation of several guides and had a good bite to eat. Nothing spectacular and average prices but the sandwiches are certainly unique. It's quite hard to tell what you're actually getting so not a place for picky eaters.

Wide choice of open sandwiches, all at the same price. Unless totally fluent in German, it can be a hit or miss as to what you think the topping is. The bread and toppings we tried were all good and worth the 1.20 euro each. Even can get a glass of wine or beer with them! Can get busy at... More

We went to this place as we saw Rick Steves recommending it. But we find the sandwiches to be so small and yet pricey. I personally did not find the sandwiches to be tasty enough to go back. They should have the english translation right where the sandwiches are and not in an 8 x 11 piece of paper. This... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
