Full description
Your small group tour of Vienna begins with a master class in coffee-making with a well-known barista. Have the chance to learn how to make an einspänner, espresso with whipped cream. Then head to Leopoldstadt where Turkish and Balkan immigrants live alongside Orthodox Jews and a young population. Stop at Supersense, a cool café and concept store dedicated to all things vintage and analog. Have a snack as you browse the unique items on offer.

Visit Vienna’s only kosher wine shop to talk about life in the Jewish district as you taste local wines. Cross the Danube for some beautiful views, and take a behind-the-scenes tour of Vienna’s biggest and most impressive synagogue. Next, head to the district of Freihausviertel, bypassed by many visitors and even some Viennese, but is currently becoming a thriving bohemian sector.

Discover why the beisl, Vienna’s take on a bistro, is a mainstay of the city’s culture. Stop at Vollpension, a student favorite where some of the community elders bake delicious goods from family recipes. Then stroll to an Austrian beer garden or two. At a neighborhood favorite, Silberwirt, savor Viennese beer and perhaps a hearty goulash.
