Viennese cuisine reflects the cultural fusion of contributions from Italian, Hungarian, Turkish and other cuisines. One of the most traditional dishes is the Wiener Schnitzel, which consists of a thin slice of veal coated in breadcrumbs and usually served with a potato salad. There are excellent dishes prepared with venison, wild boar and roe deer, which are usually accompanied by a delicious red berry sauce. One of the best ways to savour fine Viennese food is to visit the traditional Heurigen, rustic taverns in the middle of forests - particularly enjoyable in the summer months - where you can try typical specialities and a glass of young wine while listening to live Viennese music. Take a flight to Vienna and enjoy the fantastic local cakes and pastries, like Apfelstrudel, Kaiserschmarrn and of the course the magnificent Sachertorte, made of dark chocolate and smothered in apricot jam, now deservedly famous all over the world.
