February 11, 2009 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Grand Hotel WienOne of the best spots to experience the historic spendor of Vienna and the majestic age of the Austro-Hungarian Empire is the Grand Hotel Wien. Its rooms are positively decadent, and the service is fit for a king. From the hotel's perfect location on the Ringstrasse, just minutes from the Opera and St. Stephen's Cathedral, guests have the city at their doorstep. And the Grand Hotel Wien makes it easy to take in an opera performance, waltz the night away, and check out the city's many museums. Indulge in award-winning Viennese cuisine at Le Ciel, located on the 7th floor, or take a cooking class at the hotel's authentic Japanese restaurant, Unkai. Back by popular command, the hands-on courses teach the preparation of sushi, maki, sashimi, and other Japanese dishes under the direction of Chef de cuisine Hiroshi Sakai. You'll also get tips on ingredients and where to shop. Classes take place once a month, starting February 16, 2009.
