Know More about this tour

Begin your Vienna tour on one of the most famous and attractive shopping streets in the city: Graben. Home of the the court jeweler Heldwein and the famous porcelain factory of Augarten, the area is littered with imperial architecture, opulent coffee shops, and first-rate eats.

You'll stop at the coffee shop where it all began: a historic site that has been serving coffee nearly every day since 1685. We will also make a chocolate stop (it’s got to be done in this sweet-toothed city!) at a famous pastry shop and chocolaterie established in 1786. Then it’s off to the hotel that claims it invented the fabled Viennese dessert Sachertorte, a sublime chocolate cake with a fine layer of apricot jam and chocolate icing. The kitchen here churns out over 500 of these a day.

Next up is the century-old Naschmarkt, easily one of Europe’s best open-air markets. It is a mile long and showcases over 120 food stalls and some delectable restaurants that are cooking up some of the best food in the city. Enticing fruits and vegetables are available from vendors alongside delicacies from all over the world. Maybe pick up some uhudler (a fruity Austrian wine) and stone chocolates (sugar-coated chocolates that resemble pebbles) to bring back home as souvenirs.

You will then take a stroll through the buzzing bohemian district of Mariahilf, which formed part of the old red light district of Vienna. Your guide will point out some stunning art nouveau buildings, highlight the best hipster boutiques in the area, and recommend several hidden restaurants for you to try during your stay.

Then you will move on to Brunnenmarkt, one of the oldest and liveliest street markets in all of Austria, and an enthralling sprawl of Turkish grocers, fruit and vegetable producers, and home-ware bargains. This is a great spot for picking up souvenirs and taking colorful photos of locals going about their daily business.  

You will then stop at one of the tiny restaurants that surround Yppenmarkt (adjacent to Brunnenmarkt — there are so many markets you will be spoiled for choice!) to try some of the best produce the city has to offer; think crunchy vegetables, fresh fish, exotic spices, and cheeses.  

Then it’s time to investigate the famed Viennese coffee culture. Coffeehouses have played a very important role in shaping the culture of the city over the centuries, with the first cup being brewed all the way back in 1683. The Austrian Inventory of Cultural Heritage describes the coffeehouses as places “where time and space are consumed, but only the coffee is found on the bill.” Enjoy a series of private tastings in a new and very popular coffeehouse in the trendy 7th district.

Your introduction to Vienna’s food and drink scene ends here, but remember to ask your guide for more recommendations on what to see and (most importantly) what to eat and drink for the rest of your trip.

  • A genuine small group tour, including some well known and not so well known food related sites in Vienna. Very well executed, we enjoyed it very much.

  • Our Urban Adventures tour with Wolfy was one of the highlights of our vacation. Wolfy is personable, thoughtful, and incredibly knowledgeable about Vienna. It felt like we were exploring the city with an old friend. All of the cafes and markets we visited were excellent and provided a delicious glimpse at the culture, history, and personality of Vienna. I highly recommend that all visitors to Vienna take this tour.

  • Fantastic tour, our guide Wolfy was really friendly and knowledgeable. We were shown round many different places and got to sample lots of different food and drinks. Wolfy went out of his way to make sure we had a great time, would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Vienna!

  • This was awesome! Wolfy is absolutely the best host you could ask for in introduction to Vienna and the fun places to go and see. One word of warning - don't eat much breakfast before you go - ha! You will be treated to wonderful treats along the way that you won't want to miss - so do this tour one of the first days you arrive in Vienna - you will be glad you did!

  • Wolfy's walking tour was the highlight of our stay in Vienna - he was thoughtful, knowledgable and engaging which made for an extremely pleasant and relaxing experience. We would consider it a must do when in Vienna!

  • Wolfgang was terrific and he took us to some really top notch places including Demel which is a must visit. We got a really good sense of how Viennese enjoy themselves and the qualify of their goods at the markets. We highly recommend this great experience.

  • Fantastic tour! A wonderful way to see the city and enjoy some delicious food and coffee along the way. Wolfie was a very knowledgable and easy going guide. It felt more like hanging out with friends than an organised tour. I'd highly recommend this tour to anyone coming to Vienna. Do it on your first day and you'll know your way around the city like a local for the rest of your trip!
