Food, Coffee & Market Walking Tour

The fastest way to taste coffee, strudels (whichever is in the season) and fresh foods from small eateries and markets while also learning about Vienna’s culinary history along the way — is to follow an experienced local. If you haven't made any local friends who would show you around just yet, book a tour with a professional. A guide will take you to historic coffee houses, pastry shops, and even a fancy hotel in Vienna’s city centre, help you navigate the Naschmarkt market and an open-air market in the bohemian district of Mariahilf. You'll be surprised how much you can do and see in just four hours!

Dining

The Austrian capital has a rich choice of great restaurants: from gourmet dining establishments perfect before (or after) a night at the opera to down-to-earth local eateries. First time visitors simply must try a hearty Kaisersemmel, traditional Viennese bread, or a Kaiserschmarrn, Austrian chopped pancakes dusted with powdered sugar. Vienna is the only metropolis in the world that grows a significant enough amount of wine within city limits, so prepare to find plenty of good local wines to match your Viennese dinners. The most popular time for dinner in Vienna is around 7 or 8 pm, so if that's when you plan to sit down for your dinner meal — book a table in advance.
