Vienna and its Fiaker share a long common tradition. One of the most famous Viennese songs from 1885 reflects this bond. The horse-drawn carriage rides are among the most popular tourist attractions today.
Fiaker, the historic taxi-rank places, are an integral part of the Vienna cityscape and present visitors throughout the year with Vieanna's picturesque sights from a particular perspective. Many of the horse-drawn carriages are over 100 years old and offer an attractive opportunity to admire the numerous sights.
Enjoy the unique atmosphere of a cosmopolitan city with a cozy horse-drawn carriage ride and marvel at the impressive buildings and palaces of a long bygone time. Discover Vienna's magical atmosphere with a city tour and feel carried back to the history of the Empire.
