Fiaker

The term "fiaker" originates from the French and refers to the hackney carriage stand in the Rue de Saint Fiacre in Paris.  Between 1860 and 1900 more than 1.000 fiakers were on the road in Vienna. Even today the horse-drawn carriages are still a part of the cityscape, a ride with a fiaker is a higlight for many tourists.
