"Taking The Fiacres..." Fiaker - Horse Carriage Tip by coceng

Fiaker - Horse Carriage, Vienna: 18 reviews and 34 photos


Well, it's more of a tourist novelty than a mode of transport....a fiacre (Fiaker) is a traditional-style open carriage drawn by a pair of horses.

They can be found lined up at Stephansplatz, Albertinaplatz & Heldenplatz at the Hofburg.

Expect to pay around ? 36 for a 15 to 20 minute trot....& these horses must be among Vienna richest inhabitants!!

Drivers generally speak English & would point out the places of interest en route..

Try to bargain the price!
