Riding Dinner
"Riding Schnitzel" Tour

Take a ride. Take a bite:
Vienna's culinary carriage ride.

Emperor Franz Joseph was considered a dutiful ruler. But that doesn't mean his didn't know how to enjoy his reign. He is said to have liked to take his meals while travelling by carriage. Takeaway before it became a thing. Of course we can’t say for sure whether the avowed meat lover was served Schnitzel, but our guests definitely can, thanks to our “riding dinners”. Our "riding dinners" let you ride through Vienna in a horse-drawn carriage – just like the emperor used to do – and enjoy authentic Wiener Schnitzel in the carriage. Served with a glass of sparkling champagne.

Meissl & Schadn combines two musts of any visit to Vienna: sightseeing and the city's legendary cuisine. Guests are provided with the finest of Vienna’s cuisine as they pass by sights like Heldenplatz, the Hofburg palace, the state opera and the Albertina. Specially made tables make eating our delicious Wiener Schnitzel easy, even if the ride gets a bit bumpy on the city’s historic cobbled streets. And to make your experience even more unforgettable: A butler makes sure your champagne glass is always full. It's a city tour just the way we like it!

In case you're concerned about weather, there's no need. If it rains or snows, you can snuggle up with a warm blanket in a covered carriage. And your Schnitzel won't get cold either.
