Austria

Post image for How Buying A Plane Ticket Increased My Life’s Sexiness Tenfold (+Video)

I’m writing this in Doha, Qatar as I wait for my connecting flight to Vienna, Austria. Gotta wait 9 hours, but at least I got free dinner at the airport + there’s a designated room to sleep here. As of posting, I’ve already been spending 3 days in Austria.

Schnitzel at Schnitzelwirt

Viennese Schnitzel, mixed salad and wheat beer at Schnitzelwirt

If you visit Vienna, you have to eat Schnitzel at the legendary “Schnitzelwirt”. I guess a handful of guidebooks mention Schnitzelwirt – there are always a lot of  American and Japanese guests there. You get extremely big portions for a good price (not uber cheap, but definitely not expensive) and the Schnitzels taste awesome.

Be sure to request a bag to take the leftovers of your Schnitzel home if you can’t eat up. If you are a mad man, you can eat a Schnitzel or Cordon Bleu plus Germknödel (dumpling filled with plum jam, served with custard or with poppy and melted butter) for dessert. Man, I love Austrian food.

You can find this restaurant at

Neubaugasse 52, 1070 Wien

Schnitzelwirt is closed on Sundays and public holidays.
