Roaming through the City by Fiaker

Fiaker

An elegant carriage, a driver with a bowlerhat and two beautiful horses: thatīs what makes a Fiaker and the most traditional and romantic way for you to discover Vienna.

The "taxi" of former centuries, first mentioned 1622 in Paris, where they were found usually in a street called "Saint Fiacrus". Therfore in Vienna the name "Fiaker" came into use and is valid for the coach as well as for the coachman.
You can drive through the Inner City just like in the old times of the Empire. You will move quickly but still slowly enough to relish all the sights on your way. Fiakers are available at Stephansplatz, Petersplatz and Hofburg.
