Restaurants in Salzburg

With regional specialties that include wiener schnitzel, strudel, coffee, and cake, it's no surprise that Salzburg restaurants have become destinations in themselves. From ultra modern dining rooms to Bavarian beer halls, there's something to suit every occasion.

One of the best restaurants in Salzburg is the M32 in the Museum der Moderne. Here, modern-art inspired decor is paired with a seasonally inspired menu of eclectic bites. Another main draw are the first-rate views of the city's skyline via a bank of floor-to-ceiling windows.

Other standout restaurants in Salzburg include the Blaue Gans Restaurant, set at the heart of a more than 600-year-old hotel along the Getreidegasse shopping lane. Its Austrian-accented bill of fare features hearty dishes such as venison. And, summer dining gets an extra dash of ambiance on an outdoor terrace.

Farther out of town, Salzburg restaurants such as Gasthof Schloss Aigen serve patrons in a family-run country house. Its menu stays true to its roots, focusing on Austrian specialties and stocking its cellar with locally produced wines.
