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.

  • This was a great tour and would do it again. Wolfie was wonderful and took us places that most tourist do not go. At the end of the tour we the four of us were stuffed.

  • Probably should be 6 stars. Our guide Wolfie really made the tour. He was very familiar with the different neighborhoods and also made everyone comfortable. A MUST SEE and DO tour for Vienna.

  • We had a wonderful experience with our guide Patrick. He took us to all the described locations and led us in to a native Viennese perspective on the best coffee, pastry, food and the likes. It was exactly the type of off the radar tour we were seeking. I would highly recommend this tour.

  • It was a really good afternoon. we have explored food and drinks of Vienna. Not only traditional Viennese cuisine, but the food in all its varieties - traditional Sacher Torte and apple strudel, Middle Eastern Foods, cheeses, chocolates. It was quite informative too.Wolfgang took us to the places where the locals go. Gives certain insider knowledge and the feel of the place.

  • This was a relaxed and relaxing tour. Wolfie allowed us time to browse, converse and enjoy our wonderful tastes of Vienna. This was our first tour of 4 and the best! He took us on subway, tram and bus and arranged several tastings in restaurant, open air markets and cafe. So we learned not only what we liked but how to get back for more! There were no add on expenses beyond the original payment. He went above and beyond what was advertised he provided an expceptional first exposure to Vienna history, culture and life.

  • Don't miss this. Our guide Wolfy took us on a walk through parts of Vienna that you might not otherwise see. The stops included iconic coffee shops, two outdoor markets and lots of food tasting along the way. We had a congenial group of 7, all of whom were more than willing to sample the local and in some cases like at the Russian perogie stand not so local cuisine. Along the route, Wolfy added his local knowledge to the areas we were visiting. The walk, albeit with quite a few stops and a few subway rides along the way, took about 5 hours, all of which were well spent. The weather was perfect, and this might not have been as much fun had we been dealing with rain or cold.

  • Wolfie is a great guide. He knows and truly loves his city and really connected with us. We saw some major attractions as well as some others we would not have heard of otherwise.

  • Cheers to Wolfgang for making that morning memorable and quite full from all the sampling come with an empty stomach!!. I was the only one on that day, which felt like a personal tour in a way. Went behind the counter of a cheese stand in a busy market stall, sampling soooo much, I loved it! He certainly knows the best places to eat and have a good coffee. Highly recommend!!

  • We generally take a food and market tour wherever we go as it is the best way to learn about the culture and the great out of the way, places to eat. Wolfgang and his partner were fun to be with, passionate about their location, and knowledgeable about the area and the vendors we visited. The open air market was the highlight of the tour for me as it was filled with the culture and character of the area, Highly recommend the tour as well as the tour guides.

  • Essentially we had a private tour as we were the only two people booked. Wolfy was personable, energetic, and dispensed a great amount of information about food and Vienna. First stop was Demel's -- how can you go wrong there? Take this tour early in your visit as he gives ideas of places to eat!
