Scent of Vienna

What are the fragrances that tell you immediately you are here? It is a special sensation to come across a scent and instantly be transported back to a person, a place, or a part of your life.

In an age of global corporate blandness, we are looking for smells that remind us of home, and a sense of place.

Take a walk on the wild side. We invite you to sniff your way around Vienna, approaching the city like a dog.

How does it smell? Since we are looking at the westside of the city, you get hints of the Vienna woods, of mountain air and a fresh breeze, but also sausages, coffee, chocolate, beer and street markets. We step inside some legendary establishments to go deeper into the olfactory qualities of this fragrant capital. But also visit the dark side: U6 underground line and the Fiakers.

We will do some breathing exercises, tell funny stories, and compare how Vienna smells to other big cities worldwide.
