The Austrian cuisine is a colorful journey of discovery. One place in particular takes its culinary tradition very seriously – the southern city of Graz. Austria’s second biggest town remains somewhat undiscovered by overseas visitors, which preserves it as a hot insider tip for gourmets. Graz truly deserves its standing as the country’s culinary capital, as the city is surrounded by fertile land, vineyards, and organic farms, which supply Graz with local, top-quality products. It is only a two hour drive from Vienna and harbors Austria’s most beautiful farmers markets, an abundance of restaurants and an almost Mediterranean atmosphere. The people of Graz know how to live life, and they’re happy to teach you too.
