The Goulash soup and beer at the Einstein are excellent. Their various "toasts" (which they call "giant sandwiches" in English) are good too. The English menu tends to feature fewer items than the German one, so make a selection from the online menu before you go.

How to get there

It's a 20 minute walk from the K+K, but the streets are tricky to follow. Be sure to get a map from the hotel front desk. If asking for directions, the Einstein is right beside the Rathausplatz. There is a map on their website.

Einstein Webcams

The names that the Viennese give to foods have very little to do with the ingredients used.
