This visit is mandatory for the traveller and good beer drinker. It is located in an antique mill and the Augustinian monastery, where the smallest beer is a pint. It goes down like water, made with the Augustinian monks' traditional recipe, a real delight. Within a few small halls, there are little shops specializing in local foods, from a panadaria up to homemade burgers, which can be carried into the dining room. Between two rooms we found the huge barrels and the beer-only shops where you take a pitcher, whichever size you want, and it is cooled by the fountain. For me, it was the most typical thing in all Salzburg. In summer, when the weather is good, you can have a drink and socialize on the terrace outside. It's a wonderful place, I hope to return as soon as possible.
Salzburg also offers a pleasant walk through the city of Mozart. It is a visit that chocolate lovers must not miss. Like the cities of Innsbruck, Graz and Vienna, Salzburg hosts the old Café Sacher, which shares a building with the hotel of the same name. This café, with its baroque decor, chandeliers and gilded racks, reminds you of the cafés of the Viennese court, which have been recreated many times in films. There visitors can enjoy authentic Sachertorte, whose original recipe dates from 1832, and acquire a sweet souvenir in their pastry shop. The Sacher cake is made from chocolate cake and a layer of apricot jam. Then there is a layer of black chocolate frosting. It is usually served with whipped cream. The cake and the drinks are expensive, but it's worth trying the authentic Sachertorte!. Highly recommended, definitely.
When we were feeling low on energy, after a long day of sightseeing in Salzburg, after just eating the odd snack to stave off hunger from time to time just to get through the city, we passed through a gloomy alley in the late afternoon, just a step between two major streets that lead us back to the centre. In the window there was a poster and an appetizing smell which made us stop at once. Through the window we saw a busy Turkish cook preparing roasted kebabs. He invited us to enter. But from where? From the vestibule of the building, we found the entrance. It was like I lived in the building or owned the place. The menu was quite extensive and varied, including pizzas, chips and salad, but best of all was a delicious and simple falafel that it tasted like heaven. Also, the room was warm after being in the cold street. We had a quick snack that gave us strength to return to Vienna.
This is a modern food restaurant. Most dishes are in fact served in glasses. You can also enjoy delicious cocktails. While not exactly cheap, it is really worth it to be able to sip something in a refurbished hangar surrounded planes and formula 1 cars. One day a week a TV show is recorded downstairs, but it is still open to the public.
