Vienna Private Food Coffee and Market Tour Including Coffee Tasting
US$152.92
Overview

Taste everything from chocolate to coffee and wine to fresh produce, all while getting to know the ins and outs of Vienna’s culinary scene and history on a private walking tour.  You have complete flexibility to choose where you go (and what you eat). Visit the best known markets, as well as the lesser known local eateries, plus get recommendations for where to dine on the rest of your trip.

What to Expect

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

We 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. If you'd like to make any souvenir stops, let your guide know, this is your own private tour after all!

Then we 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 homeware bargains. This is a great spot for picking up souvenirs and taking colourful photos of locals going about their daily business.  

We 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.

Our 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.

Great way to experience Vienna with amazing guides!

Wolfgang & Patrick shared a side of Vienna that I don't think we would otherwise see. I always love getting a local's perspective on how people in cities live, work and play. The food we sampled was excellent and loved the Viennese coffeehouse experience for...More

Best tour in Vienna - wish I had done it first!

This was our 3rd tour in Vienna during this trip, and our last. We wish it had been our first, as we learned not only about the history of Vienna and saw the typical tourist sights, but also learned and saw much of the local...More

Really unique - time well spent!

A very informative food tour that will cover more than the basics you probably already knew about. I enjoyed taking public transit and getting to places I wouldn't otherwise go. With only a couple days in Vienna, I did not regret spending half a day...More
