Vienna 4-Hour Food Tour

On this food (and coffee) tour of Vienna, you’ll start in one of the most popular shopping destinations in the city - Graben. Here, you’ll begin your day at a historic coffee shop that has been serving coffee since 1685. And since chocolate and coffee go together like peanut butter and jelly (at least in my opinion), you’ll also stop at a famous pastry shop and chocolaterie, established in 1786. Next, you’ll stop at the Naschmarkt market, which is a mile long stretch of food stalls and restaurants. After Naschmarkt, you’ll pop over to the bohemian district of Mariahilf before going to one of the oldest street markets in Austria - Brunnenmarkt. After all this walking, you’ll get a chance to relax your feet at a restaurant in Yppenmarkt. Finally, you’ll explore the infamous Viennese coffee culture, and have a specially curated coffee tasting in some popular coffeehouses.
