Zell am See

Tafelspitz from the Pinzgau cow

At Romantik Hotel Zell am See, it will be hearty and rustic: the Austrian national dish Tafelspitz, made from the meat of the Pinzgau cow, is a must. This cow is native to the local landscape. Equally famous for the region is Pinzgauer cheese, from which the delicious Kasnockn are made. An insider tip from the inn is also the hearty Metzgerwirtschnitzel, a stuffed and breaded schnitzel that tastes especially delicious after long hikes. The journey of enjoyment now continues south to Carinthia.

Wine with a vision

In the middle of nature, surrounded by green vineyards and a fantastic view, you will find your own personal peace at Romantik Chalet Winzarei in Ehrenhausen. The culinary focus here in southern Styria, on the border with Slovenia, is on regional wine enjoyment. Characterful wines from the in-house family winery Tement, such as the Sauvignon Blanc Kalk & Kreide, a fantastic signature wine, are best enjoyed after swimming in your own infinity pool.

Wiener Schnitzel & Apple Strudel in the heart of the capital city

Where can you find the best Wiener Schnitzel in Austria? In the capital city of Vienna, of course! For over 400 years, the noble inn Zum Schwarzen Kameel in the heart of Vienna has stood for tradition, lifestyle, hospitality - and for one of the best genuine Viennese Schnitzels in town. For dessert, we recommend an original Austrian apple strudel. Less than a 20-minute walk from the restaurant (the perfect length for a short digestive stroll), the Romantik Townhouse Beethoven is located directly on Vienna's famous Naschmarkt. In the evening, enjoy sophisticated cocktails and drinks at the hotel's own Lvdwig Bar.

Salzburger Nockerln

Salzburger Nockerln & pralines in the city of Mozart

The dispute over the invention of the real Salzburg Mozartkugel, the famous praline with melt-in-the-mouth nougat, marzipan, delicious chocolate and green pistachios, has been going on forever. But no matter which brand you prefer, both manufacturers have their own large stores in downtown Salzburg and offer Mozartkugel as well as other delicious sweets, exclusive products and fresh pastries. Also sugary and delicious are the popular Salzburger Nockerln, which you can eat at both Romantik Hotel Eixhauser Wirt and Romantik Hotel Die Gersberg Alm. So Salzburg is the perfect place for all sweet tooths!
