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 in front of Halle E of the Stadthalle event venue (which hosts the Wildstyle and Tattoo fair on the same weekend in normal times. Thought we are not living in normal times). Bring your appetite.
2021 dates and tickets
This street food festival has been on tour since 2015. The last Vienna stop was on September 26th and 27th, 2020. Soon as I get dates for the next one, I’ll post them up.
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 (on the U6 line) and Schweglerstraße station (on the 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
