7 Days Culinary Vacations in Vienna, Austria

  • Vienna, Austria

Taste of Vienna, Austria

The Viennese Cuisine, which has been around for a thousand years, is a result of the pleasure-loving lifestyle of the Viennese people, who simply love to eat and therefore cook well. Spend a full week watching famous Viennese chefs at work, and then trying your hand at it; and indulging in Viennese food and Viennese wines. And as you cannot go to Vienna without "tasting the culture" you'll visit some of its great palaces. Visit the Imperial Table Museum to see the Habsburg Porcelain collection. Add a concert of Viennese music and you've got the culinary tour of a lifetime.

    "Susanne, I must admit, I was a little worried when we began planning for the Tsar's Ball, including a Moscow excursion. However, you did such a wonderful job on our Kaiser Ball trip, I placed my complete trust in your planning and executing abilities. And you delivered.Our trip to St. Petersburg and Moscow went off without a hitch. The Tsar's Ball was unbelievable. I recommend it above any New Year's Eve celebration, anywhere in the world. The travel guides you selected were knowledgeable, courteous and very helpful. The Kirov, Bolshoi and Tchaikovsky concert hall tickets all proved to be excellent. The choice of hotels was superb.All in all, it was a memorable experience. You can be assured, when our next New Year's Eve excursion, or any excursion to Europe comes about, we will definitely call you. Thanks so much."

    "The music tour is so special, because of the extras that add such a delightful surprise, such as: the matinee with the Haydn Quartet playing in the Esterhazy Palace and the privately guided 'musical' walking tours through the inner cities of Salzburg and Vienna."
