Nice quick bite

Located near the Cathedral, this was a convenient spot for a quick bite and a refreshing beer. I enjoyed selecting the little sandwiches almost as much as eating them. It was a nice, quick pit stop that allowed us to get a delicious snack and head back out to tour the sights.

Mouthwatering snack or light lunch. Tried 6 different spreads from herring to smokey, spicy peppers. House wine also delicious and complemented the food perfectly. Wish I could take this concept home with me.

The equivalent to fast-food in an elegant setting. This place is famous for very cheap open sandwiches which can be enjoyed accompanied with one of their cold and refreshing beers. Very popular and limited tables. Enjoy your food selection like the locals do, standing up in one of the high tables or at the bar.

We stopped here for lunch. The restaurant is very tiny and gets pretty crowded at lunch time. The sandwiches are ok, nothing special and not a good value.

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

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.
