The only true place where the famous Fiakers belong is Vienna. Traditionally this was a means of city transport in the 18th and 19th century. Okay, it was exclusively for the richre classes, but even now the are definately not cheap. However, seeing the town from these open horse pulled carriages is magnificent and truely belongs to this town (though many other touristic places now-a-days sadly copy this tradition). Fiakers can be found around the Sankt Stephansdom, the Hofburg and in some other places within the city centre.
