Day 1 morning:

You can get coffee everywhere nowadays. But real Viennese coffee house culture can only be found in Vienna. It's about more than coffee – it's about an attitude towards life. UNESCO takes the same view and added Viennese coffee house culture to its list of intangible cultural heritage in 2011.

Enjoy your breakfast at Café Sperl or at Café Schwarzenberg.

  • Lunch

Visit a cooking or baking course

Viennese cuisine is seasoned with the ingredients of the imperial and royal monarchy and sweetened with the famous Viennese pastries and cakes. The best way to become familiar with Viennese cuisine is to learn how to prepare it yourself - for example, at Wrenkh Kochsalon or Andante.

You do not want to cook yourself? No problem!

The name of the latest culinary trend is Farm-to-Table, which is also making inroads in Vienna. The vegetables come straight from patch to plate, if you will. It hardly gets any more regional or seasonal than this. We recommend restaurant &Flora or Restaurant Stuwer.

Day 1 afternoon: 

Elegant stores and jewelers huddle around Kärntner Strasse, Graben, and Kohlmarkt in Vienna's Old City. Vienna's trendiest shopping district is Mariahilfer Strasse and the little lanes around it.

The little shops off the trails of the major shopping boulevards can be hard to find. Shopping tours will guide you to the insider’s tips hidden on the side streets.

Vienna is a big city through and through, a world capital. So it can be surprising to learn that the city has more than its fair share of farmers, who are very much at home with the out-of-the-ordinary. Traditional local staples are now cultivated side by side with specialties. Visit modern farmers and creative food producers: Vienna Escargot Farm Gugumuck or Lingenhel.

  • Dinner

Vienna's inns and restaurants are places of meeting and exchange. They are where contacts are made, policy created, where people laugh, flirt and, of course, dine in grand style. Hospitality has always been a priority in Vienna.

The Restaurant “Zu den 3 Hacken” offers culinary classics as well as lots of baked items – from liver to calf's head. Interesting food and contemporary art are transforming the area around the Karmelitermarkt district market into one of Vienna’s most exciting neighborhoods. In this area we recommend Restaurant Skopik & Lohn.

Day 2 morning:

Whether in classical style in a coffee house, exotically in the city center, in a trendy eatery or in a cultural environment - having breakfast in Vienna is a pleasure that satisfies all expectations.

The breakfast served at Meierei in Stadtpark, which belongs to Restaurant Steirereck, is sensational. Everything has that certain something extra here. There is even a Viennese brunch with ‘beuschel’ (pig’s lights) or goulash. The restaurant in the MAK – Austrian Museum of Applied Arts/Contemporary Art has been completely remodeled. Only the fantastic coffered ceiling remains and is reflected in the name of the new restaurant: Salonplafond.

  • Lunch

A tour through the city's restaurants, coffee houses, 'Heurige' wine taverns and markets presents the pleasurable side of Vienna.

The Food Safari by Bianca Gusenbauer leads participants to 5 or 6 different tasting stations in the city. The promise: after the three-hour tour, you'll be full and happy. The tours take place on fixed dates for individual travelers and exclusively by appointment for groups.

Rebel Tours Vienna offer a tour where the participants sample their way through the two culinary worlds of Austria and Brazil. The offer combines the cuisine with an exciting tour through the 6th and 7th districts. There are culinary treats to enjoy at four stops (two Brazilian, two Austrian). In this 3,5 hour tour one will get to know the best of both worlds and at the same time emerge into Vienna´s history.

Day 2 afternoon:

At the Xocolat Manufaktur, visitors create chocolate confectionary and desserts in special workshops.

Wine has had a long tradition in Vienna. This is reflected not only by the numerous heurige but also several beautiful, old wine cellars. These are drawing in visitors with special offers and guided tours.

The magnificent Wine Cellar in the Palais Coburg was constructed inside historical ruins from the 16th century. 60,000 bottles are stored here in a 755 square-meter area. This collection of precious, rare wines is among the best in the world and has received numerous awards. 

Also worth seeing are the Schlumberger Champagne Cellars, the oldest in Austria. More than two million bottles are stored in the 300 year-old cellar of the original Schlumberger building in Vienna Döbling. 

  • Dinner

Vienna is also home to world-class gourmet restaurants. The top chefs have the courage to innovate and radicalize the traditions of Viennese cuisine.
Tip: A reservation is necessary at all restaurants!

Dinner at Steirereck im Stadtpark, still the best restaurant in Vienna: 2 Michelin stars, 5 Gault-Millau toques and in 13th place in the "World's 50 Best Restaurants". Or meat-free fine dining at Hausbar im Künstlerhaus.

Day 3 morning:

  • Breakfast

 A breakfast as in the days of the emperor awaits visitors at the Sisi buffet in Café Gloriette at Schönbrunn Palace. At Vollpension, it looks like a cool granny’s living room – with good reason: a group of grandmothers serve slices of homemade cake alongside their life stories.

At Kruste & Krume, a wide range of baking workshops are offered: From bread, apple strudel, fluffy Striezel (long plaited buns), Christmas cookies, Carnival doughnuts to Kaisersemmerl rolls and crumbly croissants.

  • Lunch

The MuseumsQuartier offers an ambiance that fits the urban lifestyle of its visitors: retaining the old, experiencing the new – and enjoying both of them together. Following this principle, a colorful and varied scene developed amid the setting of eminent museums and collections. We recommend Café-Restaurant Halle or Restaurant Kaan.

Day 3 afternoon:

Vienna is the city of coffee. Coffee tastes even better when freshly roasted in Viennese coffee roast houses. Our tip: enjoy on the spot or take home as a souvenir.

The brewery was established in 1929 by Ignaz Gegenbauer, whose main business back in those days was the manufacture of pickled preserves such as sauerkraut, gherkins and pickled vegetables. Today the old cellar vaults are used exclusively to produce high-quality vinegar products such as fruit, wine, balsamic and drinking vinegars.

  • Dinner

Enjoy an exclusive dinner at the historic Giant Ferris Wheel, taking in the stunning views of the city from 64.75 meters above ground as Vienna's trademark revolves at a pedestrian 2.7 km/h. Or participate at a vineyard and wine cellar tour within Vienna´s city limits and have dinner at a typical Viennese Heuriger like Weingut Fuhrgassl-Huber afterwards.
