Wurstelstand Leo

It is sacrilege to discuss street food in Austria without giving sausages a look in. Wurstel stands are almost considered institutions in Vienna, satisfying thousands of commuters and tourists daily with hot, quick snacks to grab on the go. Not your average, run-of-the-mill Würstelstand; this particular stall shines out as the most reputable around and is rumoured to be the longest-running hotdog stand in the city. The only downside is being spoiled for choice with many colourful varieties of Austria’s most devoured meaty snack — some of which pack a satisfying spicy punch. Choose from käsekrainer, bosna, bratwurst, frankfurter or currywurst; there is a sausage to suit everyone. If you arrive feeling particularly ravenous, consider attempting their giant Käsekrainer — although this is not for the faint-hearted.
