Vienna Media News 12/2013 VIDEO: Food and drink in Vienna
There are more than 5,600 places to enjoy great food in the Austrian capital, from ice salons to restaurants. It’s hardly surprising that Vienna has something to suit every taste, with excellent food on offer at every corner, from the first district with its incredible choices to bustling markets and charming Heuriger on the city’s leafy fringes. Here, the culinary delights start with breakfast and extend throughout the day, often ending with a trip to a sausage stand. The capital’s coffeehouses are a haven of Gemütlichkeit or coziness. Whether it’s a traditional old Kaffeehaus or a modern variation on the theme, Vienna’s cafés are popular with patrons of all ages. There are around 2,000 coffeehouses, espresso bars and café-bakeries dotted across the city. Viennese wine has a long and proud history, with modern Heuriger wine taverns and innovative growers giving the industry an increasingly young and urban face. Vienna is the only major world capital with an extensive winegrowing industry operating within its city limits. The city’s 700 hectares of vineyards shape the cityscape and the Viennese way of life.
