Genussfestival

At the beginning of May, the Vienna Stadtpark will be turned into a place of epicurean delights: The "Genussfestival" will be a showcase for select culinary specialties from Austria.

Delicious vineyard snails and ham from Vienna, gray poppyseed oil from the Waldviertel, honey from Carinthia, saffron from the Wachau, spicy cheese from Vorarlberg: At the "Wiener Genussfestival" from 9 to 11 May 2014, the best Austrian food producers and cottage industries invite you to sample and savor their delights in one of the city's prettiest parks. In addition to around 170 exhibitors, leading Austrian chefs serve regional specialties in the gourmet tent.

The Genussfestival is being held in 2014 for the seventh time. New for this year is a jam and preserves show, and there is also an appearance by two-times grilling and BBQ world champion Adi Matzek.

The Stadtpark is Vienna's oldest public park; it was created in about 1860 when the Vienna city walls were torn down and the Ringstrasse was built. The city's perhaps most photographed monument is also located here - the gold-plated statue of the king of waltz, Johann Strauss.
