The
Fiaker


The horse and carriages which can be found in Vienna's Old Town are known as Fiaker and are named after the Parisian street Rue Saint Fiacre, the location of the French capital's oldest horse and carriage stand. The (two-)horse and carriages became popular in Paris and London and in the late 17th century were also introduced in Vienna.
