Our food tour is a leisurely stroll through the city with a local foodie. The tour offers you a unique opportunity to taste the fantastic Tyrolean cuisine, to enjoy local dishes, and to hear the interesting stories behind them.
You will learn how Tyroleans hosts their guests, what we mean when we say "Neinerle ", or what a "Marend" is.
During a four hour tour we will walk through Innsbruck, with various culinary stops.
The tours are held in both German and English.
We will start with our farmers in the Innsbruck market hall („Markthalle Innsbruck“). They are the backbone of the Tyrolean cuisine.
There are also many local farmers who prepare samples, through which they convey their passion for the local and traditional culinary art.
"White or rather crumbly?" - Try a Tyrolean grey cheese („Graukäse“), perhaps in combination with a fiery chutney? On the tour a cheese sommelier will present typical local cheeses.
Then we will dive into the world of bread. Here you will be able to "sniff out" the unique history of baking bread - the kind of insight that usually is not easily accessible for tourists.
In a local bread manufacturer in Innsbruck you will get to know and appreciate bread as a form of ancient cultural heritage, lovingly and passionately produced with hundreds of years of traditional knowledge and experience.
For lunch you will taste specialities from the different Tyrolean regions, indulge your palate with various delicacies and listen to interesting stories.
As Johann Wolfgang von Goethe once wrote, ”If you have eaten and drunk, you are born as new; Be stronger, braver, more skilled at your business". And so lunch will be followed by a digestive walk through the city, the caffeinated and award-winning awakener (coffee), and sweet temptations that tell Tyrolean history.
Next, a culinary, historical journey will take us centuries into the past, until we finally end up at a cozy "Marend" and taste samples of that specialty, with which Tyrol was usually first associated.
