In a city where you can eat Kuchen and Käsekrainers just about everywhere, the Viennese have an old fashioned solution to prevent your appetite from getting out of hand.
You would think they are outdated, but don’t be surprised to spot several classic scales in Vienna’s city center. They are mostly located at bus- and tram stops, where people probably don’t have anything better to do than to wait or weigh. Since you’ll often find a Würstelstand at these locations, you can also enjoy a Käsekrainer or Waldviertler, and immediately check the damage afterwards.
But no matter how big and shiny, most people don’t seem to notice the lonely machines.
