How to eat and have fun on a budget in Vienna

Posted by on November 28, 2012

Surely Vienna is not a cheap city, but definitely is not the food the one that will make a hole in your budget.

The cheapest way to eat, that I recommend for each city you visit is: the picnic. You can find supermarkets such as Bila or Zielpunkt, where you can buy the necessary for a picnic such as: cheese, meat and more, all around the city.

Other cheap options to calm your hunger would be pastry shops or sausage stalls, known as Schnell-Imbiss or Würstel-box. You can choose from a large variety, and if you spend several days in Vienna you would be able to try each one. Among the most popular types of sausages you can taste are: Frankfurter, Bratwurst,  the spicy Debreziner, Käsekrainer which is filled with cheese and the list goes on. Generally they are served with rolls, mustard and ketchup.

Unfortunately, because I have not yet visited this wonderful city, I can not recommend cheap restaurants, but I can give you some tips that maybe will help you to eat on a budget at a restaurant:

- Ask the staff of the hotel to recommend you cheap restaurants in your area or the city centre;

- Try to eat in Neubau and Josefstadt neighborhoods, because they are university areas frequented by students and you have a good chance to find cheap restaurants;

- Cheap restaurants are also the Turkishh one, where you can try a delicious kebab.

If you want to spend a night out, cheap coffee shops and bars can also be found  in the students’ neighborhoods as Neubau and Josefstadt and you cnd visit Innenstadt for nightclubs.

Vienna offers a wide range of cheap options in order for you to experience the typical Viennese life. So if you are not picky about food, I’m sure you will enjoy the dining experience offered by stalls with sausages, pastry shops and coffee shop you will find along the streets of Vienna.


Cum sa mancati si sa va distrati ieftin in Viena


In mod sigur Viena nu este un oras ieftin, dar nu mancarea este cea care iti va face o gaura in buget.

Cel mai ieftin mod de a manca, pe care il recomand de altfel pentru fiecare oras pe care in vizitati este picnicul. Supermarketuri precum Bila sau Zielpunkt, de unde puteti cumpara cele necesare pregatirii unui picnic precum: branza, carne si altele, le puteti gasi cam in orice zona a orasului.

Alte variante ieftine de a va potoli foamea ar fi patiseriile si standurile cu carnati, cunoscute sub denumirea de Schnell-Imbiss or Würstel-box. Puteti alege dintre o varietate destul de mare, iar daca petreceti mai multe zile in Viena veti putea sa gustati din fiecare. Printre cele mai cunoscute tipuri de carnati puteti degusta: Frankfurter, Bratwurst, picantul Debreziner, Käsekrainer care este umplut cu branza si lista poate continua. In general acestia sunt serviti cu chifla, mustar si ketchup.

Din pacate, deoarece nu am fost inca sa vizitez acest minunat oras, nu va pot recomanda restaurante ieftine, dar va pot da cateva sfaturi care poate va vor ajuta sa mancati ieftin si la restaurant.

-       Rugati personalul hotelului sa va recomande restaurante ieftine in zona in care locuiti sau cea centrala;

-       Incercati sa mancati in cartierele Neubau si Josefstadt, deoarece sunt in zona cu univeristati si aveti sanse mari sa gasiti si restaurante ieftine;

-       Ieftine sunt si restaurantele turcesti, unde puteti incerca un delicios kebab.

Daca vreti sa petreceti o seara in oras, cafenelele si barurile ieftine se afla deasemenea tot in zona studenteasca, deci in cartierele Neubau Josefstadt iar pentru cluburile de noapte ar fi bine sa va indreptati spre Innenstadt.

Viena ofera o paleta larga de variante ieftine pentru a degusta din viata tipic vieneza. Asa ca daca nu sunteti pretentiosi la mancare, sunt sigura va veti bucura din plin de experienta culinara oferita de standurile cu carnati, patiseriile si cafenelele insirate pe strazile Vienei.
