Lungau Culinary Region
Hiking and Dining along the Via Culinaria in Salzburg.
Via Culinaria is the name of what is undoubtedly the most valuable guidepost to culinary enjoyment in Salzburg City and the SalzburgerLand: Divided into separate tours for gourmets, sweet-tooths, beer and schnapps lovers, cheese freaks, and hut fans, the Via Culinaria highlights the top addresses to wine, dine, and experience pleasant companionship.
Fans of "firewater" will find award-winning brandies in the Moser schnapps distillery in Zederhaus and at the Franzlahof in Tamsweg.
At the Hiasnhof in Göriach and at the Trimmingerhof in Tamsweg, cheese lovers can treat their taste buds to the best cheese made from fresh organic milk. "Organic" is also the magic word at the Greilhof in Tamsweg, which is home to 40 happy cows.
At Biohof Sauschneider in St. Margarethen, the Löcker family conjures up homemade pasta and bread from Lungau Tauern rye (an old Lungau rye variety).
Those with a sweet tooth will fall in love with Confiserie Hochleitner in Tamsweg. The potato-basil-chocolate is a true revelation. You will also find sweet temptations at Marmeladen-Magier in Trausner's Genusswerkstatt in Mauterndorf.
Meat lovers will be treated to mutton roast at Gasthof Brunnerwirt in Mauterndorf or at Gasthof Andlwirt in St. Andrä.
Romantikhotel Wastlwirt in St. Michael places special importance on tried-and-true cooking traditions, and you will be delighted while watching the head chef cook in the "smoke kitchen".
The restaurant Mesnerhaus in Mauterndorf (3 Gault Millau toques and 1 Michelin star) as well as "Die Stub'n" in Mariapfarr (1 Gault Millau toque) are exceptional highlights for connoisseurs.
