Culinary diversity of Graz

Graz is the capital of the Austrian region Styria. The city is well known for its old town and its diverse traditional food and beverage scene. Life in Graz is a little slower and more relaxed than in Vienna – the city has almost a Mediterranean feeling with its small streets and little places.

 

Since Graz is surrounded by beautiful nature and agricultural land it is no surprise that visitors can enjoy all these influences in the restaurants, bars, pubs, cafés and wineries.

 

 

Discover on different tours the culinary diversity of Graz and the Styria region:

Vienna is a culinary city:

The Viennese coffee house is known around the globe for its informal pleasantness, as an oasis of coziness. The city is also famous for its real Viennese “Heuriger” or wine taverns. With their legendary comfortable atmosphere, they primarily offer the Viennese and their guest’s entertainment, fine Viennese wines and the fitting culinary accompaniment.

 

Vienna is a modern city:

Trendy clubs, "young" galleries, modern architecture and stylish shops are as much Vienna as the state opera concert halls or the splendid buildings.

Meet & Ski in the Alps

Summer in the Alps is magnificent. Winter is fantastic. Snow-capped mountains as far as the eye can see. A perfect ski slope system that offers all the possibilities of alpine skiing to everyone from beginners to advanced skiers. Countless winter activities in addition to the slopes to enjoy. But how to combine these leisure activities with work? How to manage to get nice rooms at a good price from Thursday to Sunday? When St. Anton, Ischgl and Saalbach-Hinterglemm are either not available for weekend breaks or very expensive, Innsbruck is the alternative.

 

Innsbruck, the capital of the Alps in Tyrol, is easy accessible by direct flights from European cities and has a good motorway connection from Munich.

Christmasmarkets in Vienna

Less than 4 months away!

 

In Vienna Christmas starts earlier than elsewhere. Already in mid-November most Christmas markets of the city open and spread Christmas feeling and the wonderful aromas of Christmas (e.g. Christmasmarket in front of the town hall: 12.11.-24.12.2016.) Biscuits, roasted chestnuts and punch not only at the Christmas markets – even many restaurants in the city have terraces or patios, which are available for an outdoor reception with hot drinks during the cold season. The warming up can be followed by a game of “Eisstockschiessen”, the traditional Austrian variant of curling. Enjoy the famous “Ganslessen” – goose, side dishes and schnaps afterwards – in a cozy Viennese tavern.
