Your tour will begin near the Naschmarkt, where you’ll join up with your guide and head into the hustle and bustle.
Stop at the array of colorful stalls to chat with the vendors and taste the fare, which alters seasonally. You may find yourself trying anything from Viennese cucumbers to Middle Eastern kebabs, or exotic spices and ruby pomegranates.
As you go, hear about the market’s 16th-century origins, when milk bottles were the main item on supply. By the 18th century, the Naschmarkt was the city’s main hub for purchasing produce and today remains unrivaled in its culinary diversity, ranging from fresh bread and cheese to crepes and sushi.
After tasting a variety of Austrian, Mediterranean and Asian offerings at the stalls, pick up some insider tips while perusing the herbs and spices so you can experiment with new dishes back at home.
After two hours of exploring the market, your tour will conclude at your original departure point.
