My Vienna: Eisfuchs specialty ice-cream in the 7.

Above/featured: Eisfuchs, at Neubaugasse 31 – 1 Jun 2022 (X70).

I’m on a 4-week stint in Vienna in late-spring/early-summer. Days are getting warmer, and I’m search of “Eis”. There are no shortage of ice cream shops in Vienna; trick is finding a really good one.

Out of their many recommendations, my host has pointed out Eis-Fuchs (“ice fox”), a small ice cream shop in the 7th district, known to residents local and across the city, but little recognized outside of Vienna.

That’s my kinda place.

All of their ice cream is made “in house,” and while they’ve got a list of favourites, they have a selection of “seasonal” varieties, which are made in small batches which last from a few days to a week or two. My favourite flavours are “Cheesecake Marille” (apricot cheesecake) and “Tarte au Citron” (lemon tart). The dessert is rich and creamy, and the fruit provides a refreshing tart edge.

With the 2nd visit, I promise the woman behind the counter I’ll visit more regularly. At the next visit, she nods at me in recognition and we chat a little about the ice cream: the variety of flavours and their production. With my final visit, I announce with some regret that my time in Vienna is ending, and I must return to Canada; I leave the shop with a double scoop of deliciousness.

Directions

From the apartment in the 6., it’s a short 10-minute walk, or if I’m truly lazy, it’s a couple of stops with the bus. In the warm/summer season, they’re open Mondays to Saturdays from 1/130pm to 8/830pm, and closed Sundays and holidays.

Public transport with Wiener Linien:

•   U-Bahn U3, to Neubaugasse station.
•   Bus 13A, to stop “Neubaugasse, Westbahnstrasse”.
•   Tram 49, to stop “Westbahnstrasse, Neubaugasse”.

My visits to Eisfuchs were neither requested nor sponsored. I made all images above with a Fujifilm X70 fixed-lens prime (X70) on 1 Jun 2022 and with an iPod Touch 6 (iPT6) on 11 Jun 2022. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-mYH.

      Hi, Cornelia. Any and all ice cream made locally and in small batches is a very good way to taste some of the best varieties. That’s definitely the experience at Eisfuchs. Thanks for stopping by!
