It would be rude of us not to offer you a coffee before getting started properly. So, we will stop for a quick coffee and a tasty treat. Instead of one of the famous Viennese coffee houses, where mainly tourists wait in line, we will head to one of the few cafes that locals visit in the 1st District, a quirky and well-functioning “Kulturcafe”. Then, we browse one of Europe’s most famous markets – “Naschmarkt” - before heading to one of our off-the-beaten-track outer-district markets. There, you learn the locals’ secret to “Gemütlichkeit” and why Vienna is placed so high in the “most livable city” rankings. Then, we discover where the locals go for the best coffee in the city, graze on a number of sweet and savory delights, hand-picked by your guide from street stalls, markets and trendy cafes we pass along the way.
We design tours to give you an insider look into Vienna’s culture, off the beaten track. We started this Air BnB experience to give travelers a chance to walk the streets with a local. We love our city, its wide range of food and people and, especially, what we do! Wolfgang: successfully worked in the restaurant/hotel business as an owner/manager. Patrick: worked in various fields from selling vinegar at a market to IT support. Kerstin: is a very successful tour guide and has been working with people with special needs for a long time. Lena: has been working in restaurants her whole life and is a perfect fit for our culinary and sporty tours. John: entrepreneur with a specialty in political science. Verena: After years as a hospitality expert in Europe and the U.S., Verena is finally back in “her” city and sharing it with friends!
