If you want to eat your way around the world, you could buy a few plane tickets. Or you could simply spend some time at the European Street Food festival.
- Vienna stop on an ongoing tour
- Dozens of food trucks serving international dishes
- Held outside the Wildstyle & Tattoo fair at the Stadthalle
- 2020 dates: TBA (was Mar 30/31 in 2019)

Street food in Vienna
Picture a culinary map of the globe converted into numerous food trucks & stalls and you’ve pretty much got it… a chance to sample a wide range of edible (and drinkable) delights from around the world.
So you might find flame-grilled salmon next to waffles on a stick, Thai curry or Berlin curried sausage, a pulled pork burrito or a chicken fajita, Bratwurst or baked potatoes…you get the idea.
The festival is open-air, located (last time out) in front of Halle E of the Stadthalle event venue (which hosted the Wildstyle and Tattoo fair on the same weekend). Bring your appetite.
2020 dates and tickets
This street food festival has been on tour since 2015. The last Vienna stop was on March 30 (11 am to 10 pm) and March 31 (11 am to 8 pm), 2019. Soon as I know when the next one will be, I’ll post details. The good news is that entrance is always free. (Obviously the food isn’t.)
How to get to the Stadthalle
As a major event venue, the Stadthalle is easily reached by public transport and has its own for-fee car parks.
Subway: Halle E is a short walk from the Burggasse-Stadthalle station (U6 line) and Schweglerstraße station (U3 line)
Tram/bus: Trams 6 and 18 also stop at Burggasse-Stadthalle. Another option is the tram 9 (or 49) to Beingasse or Urban-Loritz-Platz. Or bus 48A to Moeringgasse (driving toward the city centre) and Koppstraße/Thaliastraße (driving away from the city centre).
Address: Outside Halle E, Wiener Stadthalle, Roland-Rainer-Platz 1, 1150 Vienna | Website
