The congenial atmosphere of cozy, family-style wine taverns, known as heurigens, is perfectly complemented by hearty food, lively music — and locally produced vintages, of course. Heurigens traditionally have rustic décor, open courtyards with outdoor seating, and an accordion player playing traditional Viennese songs. You’ll visit an authentic heurigen for dinner, music, and wine! You can look forward to a fun and festive evening!
If you ask a Hungarian what some typical Hungarian products are, you will very likely hear of the Hungarian paprika, Tokaj wine, salami, goose liver, and the bittersweet liqueur known as Unicum. Join us on this afternoon tour, and you'll discover the culinary treats offered by this wonderful country! Your tour begins with entrance to the Zwack Unicum Museum, where your English-speaking guide will introduce the secrets of liquor production that have been passed from one generation to the other in the Zwack family since the 18th century. Your visit includes a short film about the history of Unicum, a museum tour, entrance to the cellars, and a tasting of Unicum.
Your tour continues to the Central Market Hall, the largest and most beautiful market in the city. This three-story hall offers plenty to do and see, and with the help of your guide, you'll have a great experience at the market! You'll see the local housewives’ shopping habits as well as the colorful Hungarian products — including strings of red paprika and garlic, Hungarian salamis, sausages, hams, and other meat products; fresh pastries; dairy products; Hungarian wines and palinka; and more. As you walk row by row to get ideas for souvenirs, you'll take in the vibrant atmosphere of this exceptional hall. Following your market visit, you'll transfer back to your hotel and your tour will come to an end.
