Culinary tours of Vienna
Vienna is famous for its cuisine, its coffee house culture and the 'Heurige' wine taverns. The culinary facets of the city can best be explored on a tour.
The culinary tours of "Wien bewegt" lead participants, on request, to selected restaurants with Viennese cuisine, various 'Heurige' wine taverns or coffee houses. On the tours, bon vivants experience a mix of culture, history and culinary delights. A minivan takes the visitors from one restaurant to the next, so there is also plenty of sightseeing to enjoy on the way. Two to three restaurants, cafés or bars are visited on the tours, which are individually composed. The following focal points are on the program and can also be combined: Viennese Cuisine, 'Heurige' Wine Taverns, Coffee Houses, Monarchy and Deluxe.
