Gourmet Festival in the Vienna Stadtpark

Gourmet Festival in the Vienna Stadtpark

In the beginning of May, the Vienna Stadtpark will be turned into a place of epicurean delights: The "Genussfestival" will be a showcase for select culinary specialties from Austria.

That includes Viennese escargot and ham, grey poppyseed oil  from the Waldviertler region of Lower Austria, Carinthian honey, saffron from Wachau and spicy cheese from Vorarlberg.

At the "Vienna Genussfestival" from May 11 to 13, 2012, the best Austrian food producers and small manufacturers invite visitors to sample and savour in one of the city's prettiest parks.

In addition to about 100 exhibitors, top Austrian chefs will serve regional specialities.

The Genussfestival is being held for the fifth time this year; last year there were over 130,000 visitors in the Stadtpark. Demonstrations and tastings will be held throughout this gourmet festival. The School of Taste offers a special program for children.

The Stadtpark is Vienna's oldest public park; it was created in about 1860 when the Vienna city walls were torn down and the Ringstrasse was built. The city's perhaps most photographed monument is also located here - the gold-plated statue of the king of waltz, Johann Strauss.
