Vienna audio tour: The Vienna Food Walk

The Vienna Food Walk

Walking Tour

60 mins

About the Tour

Vienna is known for a lot of things, but none of them seems to be food. As an Austrian country hick who moved to the city from a tiny village and has lived my whole adult life in Vienna, I think that this is totally wrong. Viennese people are what they eat. This tour will show you how the Viennese people see their city, by showing you which foods and especially drinks are liked the most by the people here. You'll hear the stories that shaped the Viennese people including: 

  • What the Romans built while in Vienna
  • Which tiny snacks that survived two world wars
  • Old buildings that look new and new buildings that look old
  • Vienna very own wine
  • Which food good enough for the emperor
  • And why ice cream parlours closing in winter

So tuck into this food-filled off the beaten track walk through the first district and eat like a local.

The tour includes optional stops at five eateries, so come hungry!

Vienna, food and drinks are my passion. And to share that passion I have created tours so that you might be infected by my passion for food.

How VoiceMap Works

Focus on your surroundings, not the screen

VoiceMap’s audio tour app uses GPS to play audio automatically, at the right time and place. Just install it, then download your tour and go to the starting point to begin your walk, drive, cycle, train trip or even boat ride.

Follow a route with turn-by-turn-directions

Tours follow a route from a fixed starting point. This is how we provide turn-by-turn directions. It also helps publishers tell a story greater than the sum of its parts. But you can use Resume to pick up a tour from the closest location whenever you like.

Listen as many times as you like

You can listen to your tours as often as you like using both the VoiceMap app and the VoiceMap website. Your access to tours doesn’t expire.

Take virtual tours anywhere

Just select Virtual mode in the VoiceMap app to listen to tours at home – or anywhere else. You’ll see the option after you download the tour. You can also listen to the whole tour here on the website.

Buy for less on and sync

Once you’ve purchased a tour, it’s added to your VoiceMap library. If you sign into the app using the same method you used on the website, you’ll have access to your full library of tours in both places.

Use VoiceMap offline

The VoiceMap app works entirely offline if there’s no data connection, so you don’t have to pay roaming fees. Just download the tour over WiFi before you get started.
