Learn from the masters
of Wiener Schnitzel

Sundays for many kids meant the loud pounding in the kitchen that slowly drifted into the kids’ room. And the anticipation that shortly there’d be some freshly fried schnitzel on the table. Fantastic!

Nowadays, the true method of preparing a Wiener schnitzel is at risk of being forgotten. That ends now! At Figlmüller’s Wiener Schnitzel Academy, you’ll not only learn how to make a proper schnitzel, but how to make the best schnitzel. To share this not-so-secret recipe with others, we’ve opened up a private kitchen, where you can have a relaxing evening and learn some tricks of the trade.

Figlmüller’s Wiener Schnitzel Academy: Bäckerstraße 4, 1010 Vienna
Booking by advanced appointment, for closed groups from 8-12 persons.


Learned something new: Empty stomachs don’t like learning either.

No academy night would be complete without an abundance of culinary delights: a several-course menu plus beverage accompaniments await!

After some titbits and appetizers from the kitchen get the night started, the true culinary highlight comes in the form of your own handmade schnitzel. You can then look forward to a dessert to cap off the evening, almost as much as you can look forward to your new title: Master of Wiener Schnitzel! Vienna wouldn’t be Vienna, if there weren’t some titles handed out. We’ll leave it up to you if you want to include it on your business cards.

Being there, having fun, eating, drinking, laughing, chatting—that’s what life’s all about.

To complete the cooking class at our Wiener Schnitzel Academy, please plan on spending four hours.

During the Academy, one of our cooks will join you and show you how to correctly prepare the cut, initiate you in the art of the dredge and guide you every step of the way to creating pure schnitzel gold.
