Backing the right horse

This is where the Viennese once gambled away their last penny, long before the euro existed. If you bet on the wrong horse today, it won't hurt your wallet. Bet from just one euro and watch how "Disco Darling", "Dreamboy" and others do their laps on the sandy track.

On really good racing days, up to 3,000 visitors make the pilgrimage to Krieau. But the heyday of equestrian sport has long since passed – nowadays, it is the special ambience that attracts keen betters and horse lovers. The low-priced spritzer, the retro buffet and the low wager probably do as well.

A real eye-catcher is the heritage-listed aiming tower – a five-story steel and glass construction. The modern skyline of Viertel Zwei in the background – an innovative residential and office quarter – appears like a surreal backdrop. Have a look and see. Want to bet you'll like it?
