Get a piece of Vienna at home

So much choice and planning that can make you hungry.

Do you like to cook? Then your travel preparation can also consist of bringing the taste of Vienna to your home and by cooking typical Viennese dishes.

Vienna is the only city in the world to give its name to an independent style of food - Viennese cuisine. Influences from various countries have contributed to what we now know as typical Viennese cuisine. And that is much more than just Schnitzel and Kaiserschmarrn. You can find many recipes again on the website of the Vienna Tourist Board 

Another culinary specialty in Vienna is wine. Did you know that Vienna is the only metropolis in the world that does notable wine-growing within the city borders. More than 700 hectares of Viennese vineyards and viticulture has a long tradition in Vienna. White wines are grown on around 80% of the vineyards, a specialty of which is the Viennese Mixed Set. You can find out more about Viennese wine and where you can taste it particularly comfortably in Vienna at the Vienna Tourist Board.

And finally something sweet. Also famous around the world is a small waffle from Hernals, the original Mannerschnitten. It started its journey around the world a long time ago and for me it gives me the feeling of home, no matter where I am in the world.

So, could I inspire you? No matter when your next visit is due, planning your trip can be a lot of fun.
