We start off the day by riding the subway to the 10th district to a family-owned bakery. There, you will be treated to a variety of typical Viennese pastries, including the famously airy “Krapfen”! After that, we will explore the area of "Favoriten", a district that gets its name from … furthermore. You will be able to see the "local" Vienna from our perspective. Next, you will get an awesome introduction to hand-made baklava. After that, we will move on to the 4th district, also via the subway. Throughout the tour, we will explain the public transportation system so that after the tour, you will be able to fully use it on your own. There, we will explore a typical, but not well known, coffee house. They are known for authentic Austrian cakes and “Strudel” that are simply delicious. Once we finish there, we will walk to the “Naschmarkt” and end the tour sampling some hand-made Austrian chocolate creations.
