A new star from a very ancient wine culture.
Food, Wine and Tourism:
Austrian cuisine has many fathers from Italy (Wiener Schnitzel), Hungary (Gulasch, Palatschinken), Turkey (Appelstruder). This diversity has a lot to do with their history, the Hapsburg Empire, one of the longest and most powerful dynasty in Europe which lasted for over 600 years and had borders as far as Turkey, Poland, part of Germany, Hungary, some part of France, the former Yougoslavia, some part of Italy.
It is a very different cuisine from the German one. In fact they have barely anything to do with each other.
The Empire created in Austria a melting pot which brought many different regional cuisine and culminated in the serious Viennese culinary scene.
