A Taste of Vienna - Heavenly Heurigers and Verdant Vineyards

Vienna is a city most people dream of with its picturesque vineyards immortalized in the works of countless artists and hills ringing with the sounds of great symphonies. Step away from the art scene and you are immersed in a world of rich culture and, most importantly, decadent wines and meals at every turn. Travel writer and food enthusiast Leah Walker of Leah Travels recently found herself in the middle of a whirlwind of appetizing Viennese delights. From the super-luxurious Ritz-Carlton, to a heuriger that was once the home of Beethoven, Leah ventured to some truly amazing locations and has photos and stories to share. In the words of Billy Joel, "Vienna waits for you."
