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, one of your included tastings, 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).
After exploring the city a bit, your guide will take you to the Naschmarkt, which is the best place to explore the eclectic and rich food traditions which have assimilated into Viennese food. The market is a vast emporium, created in the 16th Century, and sells Austrian, Turkish, and Eastern European delicacies. Your tour will finish at the market, where you are welcome to stay and explore further at your leisure.
