"FREYUNG" Freyung - Palais - Schottenkloster - Passage Tip by mel_bee

  Market in front of the Schottenkirche
by mel_bee

The Freyung is a square in the north of the first district not far from Schottentor where you will often find organic farmers markets, Easter and Advent markets and other Austrian markets. The square is bordered by the Schottenkirche which means Scottish church but was actually built by Irish monks (people got confused by the Latin name for Ireland). Just across from the Freyung is the Palais Ferstel, a beautiful shopping palace which leads through to the delicious apple strudel at the famous Cafe Central.
