Vienna offers a very diverse culinary scene ranging from delicious sausage stands, traditional coffee houses to schnitzel restaurants that have become institutions. The culinary tour will provide a peek into Austrian history and an exploration of traditional Viennese food.
Your tour will begin at a famous Viennese coffee house; it is natural place for a good start of the day. A traditional coffee house in Vienna is quite different to what you may have experienced elsewhere in the world. It is no wonder that the UNESCO lists the Viennese coffee house culture as an Intangible Cultural Heritage. Many traditional coffee houses date back to the 1800s, they are places where time and space are consumed, but only the coffee is found on the bill.
After your coffee house visit you will go to see the Sacher Hotel and the Albertina museum. You will also see the Monument against War and Fascism and learn about the Second World War in Vienna.
Then, you will make a stop at the Bitzinger Sausage stand, which is widely known to be serving the best sausages in Vienna. You will sample a variety of their sausages accompanies by Austrian beer or a local non-alcoholic beverage.
