A würstelstand

A Würstelstand (literally "sausage stand"; plural "Würstelstände") is a traditional Austrian street food retail outlet selling hot dogs, sausages, and side dishes.[1] They are a "ubiquitous sight" in Vienna.[2]

Würstelstände 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 Würstelstände allowed to become stationary. Many of them can be found near transit hubs and around subway stations.[3]
