Naschmarkt: Austrian Gastronomy
In this three hour walking tour, your expert local guide will introduce you to some of the best Austrian culinary specialities and direct you to the most important cultural sites of Vienna.
Delicacies of Vienna
Vienna has been voted the best city in the world to live in, which is in no small part due to the atmospheric coffee houses and distinguished culinary history that thrives in the marketplaces and eateries around town. The Viennese sausage was originally brought from Frankfurt in the 19th century and was refined to give it a distinctive local taste. Aside from sausage, Austria boasts some famous dishes, including schnitzel (tenderized fillet of meat, fried in breadcrumbs) and apple strudel (a delectable apple based dessert).
The Best of the Naschmarkt
The Naschmarkt is a prime location to try some of these Austrian specialities- boasting a multitude of stalls serving some of the best food in the city. It is a vast emporium, created in the 16th Century and sells Austrian, Turkish and Eastern European delicacies.
While in the market, be sure to visit a sausage stand, as they are ubiquitous to the city can indeed be found all over town. Sausage is so popular in the city that these stalls have developed their own unique subculture, with some vendors serving the city for years.
