Food & Drink in Austria
Austria’s ski resorts are well known for their welcoming friendly atmosphere and fantastic mountain restaurants and cafés serving traditional main dishes like Wiener Schnitzel, the national dish of Austria. Although the true origin of the Wiener Schnitzel is up for much debate, Austrians, particularly Viennese, have taken this meat dish (a very thin, breaded and pan fried veal cutlet, although a popular variation is made with pork) very much to their hearts.
Visitors to Austria should also delve into an Apple Strudel, the famous sweet cake made from puff pastry, apples and cinnamon sugar. Tipple-wise, a steaming hot mug of Glühwein at a cosy mountain hut is a must. Guten Appetit!
