Known for the specialities from the region and loved for the homely atmosphere - in the Dachstein Salzkammergut you will be served with charm!

Some delicacies have a long past and still today one or the other custom is passed on from generation to generation. Like the "Beugerl/Beigerl" during carnival.

After the work is done, when the fresh hay is dry and stowed away in the barn, there are the so-called "Einheigkrapfen", the main meal for the woodworkers, also called "Holzknechtnockn".

For Christmas, the usual veal sausage is fried and Grandma's vanilla croissants are served as dessert.

On Good Friday, the Protestant holiday, the delicious "Pofesen" are eaten in the Inner Salzkammergut.

According to a legend, the real "Kaiserschmarrn" was cooked for the first time on a mountain pasture in Bad Goisern during the visit of the emperor.

So special dishes characterize a special custom ...all year round!

The Dachstein glacier rules over a delicacy paradise in the manageable natural environment of the Dachstein Salzkammergut, which unfolds an undreamt-of wealth on closer inspection. The delicacies that the Dachstein Salzkammergut has to offer for every taste are exquisite, individual and seductive.  Some recipes remain secret, others are passed on.

A visit to one of the traditional, rustic inns is recommended for both thirsty and hungry people. A friendly smile and a cozy conversation, or as the locals would say "Dischgu", is the order of the day. The inn is probably the liquid supply and communication centre in the Dachstein Salzkammergut.
