Cuisine in Salzburg

Epicurean delights in Salzburg

Shady beer gardens, traditional coffeehouses, posh gourmet restaurants, trendy bars and cozy inns invite epicures to wine and dine in Salzburg. The rich diversity of restaurants in the city cater to the palate of gourmets, people with a sweet tooth and night owls alike.

Mozart is omnipresent

You shouldn’t just order a cup of coffee in the city’s renowned coffeehouses, such as the Café Tomaselli, the oldest café in Austria. Taste the difference between the different coffee variations such as Melange (a mix of frothed milk and steamed coffee), Grosser Brauner (a large cup of steamed black coffee), Verlängerter (a larger but weaker version of the Grosser Brauner, typically served with milk) or Einspänner (strong, black coffee served in a high glass with a dash of whipped cream). And be sure to try one of the delicious pastries: a piece of apple strudel, Esterhazy cake or Mozart gateau. The Mozartkugel is a popular Salzburg souvenir: the distinctive combination of marzipan and chocolate will melt in your mouth.

A variety of culinary delights

Epicures will face endless choices in Salzburg: the state of Salzburg has the highest concentration of gourmet restaurants in Austria. Many of these fine dining establishments are located in the city of Salzburg. Salzburg is also a trendsetter when it comes to organic food: nearly 38 % of the agricultural enterprises are organic farmers. Even the simpler restaurants serve fine delicacies from the Salzburg region.
Four extraordinary breweries in the city of Salzburg invite guests to enjoy a hearty snack in a convivial atmosphere. Favorite places to grab a bite in between are the delicatessen shops in Salzburg’s Old City, the stands at the Green Market or one of the weekly farmers’ markets on Mirabell Square or Papageno Square.

Precious moments

Salzburg features inviting bars and pubs, wine bars, specialty restaurants and international gastronomy as well as trendy bars and hot spots. The big advantage: they are all located a stone’s throw from each other.
If you plan to spend an evening outside of the city, you’ll find wonderful dining locales in Salzburg’s environs, including the Schlosswirt in Anif, the award-winning Pfefferschiff Hallwang or the Romantikhotel Gmachl in Bergheim.
Restaurants throughout the state have joined forces under the “Salzburger Wirtshauskultur” (Culture of Salzburg Inns) brand, serving their guests typical regional foods and beverages.
