As soon as we touch down at the airport in Vienna my husbands asks when he'll have his "small Gulasch and small beer". This is his way of being part of a city that has been titled the most liveable city worldwide three years in a row.
His choice of restaurant is way off the beaten path: The Cafe Alt Wien. The cafe seems to be a relict from former times, with yellowed, postercovered walls and makeshift tables. Once you enter you immediately feel transformed into a different era, time seems to be at an almost stillstand. And off course the Gulasch is excellent and for my husband the only thinkable way to arrive in Vienna.
Café Alt Wien is a trip to the Bohemian lifestyle, decorated with posters and old leather chairs; velvet covered seating arrangements, and authentic Viennese. Their only adaption is a sectioned off area for non-smokers. They are located on a quiet back street at Backerstrasse 9, 1010 Wien
