Vienna Würstelstand's says

Introducing our new video series, Vienna’s History Mysteries – where we seek out the mysteries of Vienna’s past and try to solve them. Sometimes we succeed, sometimes we fail. Most importantly, we always learn a whole bunch of really interesting stuff about Vienna! 

For the first episode, our host, Samantha Pyra, explores the mystery behind a mysterious medeival tree trunk with a bunch of nails hammered into it. Located directly across from Stephansdom, it’s known as Stock im Eisen and you’ve probably walked past it a hundred times without even noticing.

This video is a vienna senf production. vienna senf is our video channel where we put videos out into the world that hopefully make you smile, and help you make the most out of Vienna…and life. Subscribe if you like what you’re seeing above 😉
