Allow me to briefly take you back a few days to the magnificent city of music, dreams and food. Famous for Apfelstrudel, Sacher Torte, Würstel and most importantly Schnitzel.
Vienna possesses countless restaurants that serve you Schnitzel. But let me tell you, nowhere will you find something so marvellous and mind-blowing as here. Mr. Figlmüller is the godfather of the Schnitzel and maintained this culinary ecstasy since 1905.
The boy and I woke up at 11 a.m., skipped breakfast and made our way straight to the taverna on Wollzeile, nestled right behind the beautiful St. Stephen’s Cathedral. The boy, having made the restaurant his second livingroom warned me about the huge queue which we would have to face.
Although we arrived there at 11.30 on the dot.
We got inside 2 hours later, having ducked into the coffee shop opposite to save our toes.
All I have left to say is you MUST. MUST. MUST. MUST GO.
Although I trust you will go for their Schnitzel, there are plenty of other Viennese specialities on the menu for you to choose from.
p.s. If you want to squeeze a little workout into your pilgrimage and then make sure you climb the medieval steps to the St Stephen’s Cathedral; not for the elderly, infirm or fainthearted. Not just a great way to burn the calories but the beauty of the view is worth dying for.
