What distinguishes the Salzburg cuisine?

There are more than 220 places of delights along the Via Culinaria. This collection of eight culinary pathways should serve as a map of fine taste. But why is the SalzburgerLand so well-known for its cuisine? Over the past centuries cookery carried an important role for the whole SalzburgerLand. The traditional dishes of a simple farmer’s household are today just as significant as the food of the Royal Archbishop. From Bauernkrapfen to Salzburger Nockerl – get spoiled with culinary delights!

Fish and meat

If the fish is fished early in the day from crystal clear waters and served in the evening on the lakeside terrace, fish enthusiasts are happy. For the excellent dishes such as beef roulades, rehragout or berglamm, the respect for nature always comes first. The animals graze on the pastures and meadows of the SalzburgerLand. You can taste this with every bite.

Excellent drinks

How many rowanberries do you need for a bottle of high-proof liquor? Why are the best ingredients for the “Obstler” from windfallen fruit? And how does beer from Salzburg’s hops taste? These and many more culinary secrets are revealed in the breweries and schnapps distilleries in the SalzburgerLand. Have a taste!
