A Würstelstand (literally "sausage stand") is the Austrian version of a hot dog stand. These stands were initially created during the period of the Austro-Hungarian Empire to provide a source of income for incapacitated former soldiers. Not until the 1960s were the stands allowed to become stationary. The Bitzinger sausage stand next to the Albertina museum is held to be on of the best in Vienna. Currently it also catches the eye because of the green replica of Albrecht Dürer's "Young Hare" on top it.
