Discover Vienna

Mensa Tour with Julie


Vienna offers numerous public canteens and university dining halls, some more easily accessible, others hidden away in old palaces or in the city's high-rise buildings. 

But they all have one thing in common: this unmistakable flair and charm, the coming and going and a lunch table that is open to people of all social classes.

The quick, easy access, no long waiting times, the self-service, the mouse-grey trays and the low prices attract thousands of people to the city's canteens.

In the busy university canteens you can feel the pulse of the times, in the canteens of the civil servants the typical Viennese cosiness.

Are you looking for unknown culinary discoveries in the city, new to Vienna, a student, tourist or expat?

I will accompany you expertly to selected canteens. Experience a truly delicious city tour through Vienna's hidden canteens.

This tour leads with humour and a wink of the eye as well as a lot of insider knowledge into the social and the university life of Viennese students. This experience combines a city tour off the beaten tourist track with the aim to discover Vienna's special canteens.
