What to Eat in Salzburg

Foodies will find plenty to sink their teeth into during their time in Salzburg. Here in the city of Mozart and "The Sound of Music," travelers can find a wide array of eateries and breweries, which range from affordable coffee shops and casual bites to pricier Michelin-starred restaurants and fine dining establishments. In fact, Salzburg has more gourmet restaurants within its city limits than any other Austrian city. As a result, diners can indulge in plenty of top-notch Austrian and German food — which consists of hearty soups, dumplings and stuffed pastries — while visiting Salzburg.

For those on a budget, there are plenty of affordable options. To start, coffee lovers should check out 220 Grad, which roasts all the coffee it serves in-house alongside an assortment of cakes, crostini and small bites. And if you're in need of some authentic Austrian and German comfort classics, grab a bite at Zum Zirkelwirt. The restaurant's menu includes traditional dishes like Wiener schnitzel (fried pork cutlets), gulasch (the Austrian take on Hungarian goulash served with bread), rindsuppe (beef soup with dumplings or pancakes) and marillenknödel (apricot dumplings).

Diners who are willing to spend a bit more coin cannot leave Salzburg without visiting the Michelin-starred Esszimmer. Previous visitors rave about the three-course lunch menu offered here, which features rotating offerings like goose liver pate, halibut and beetroot ice cream alongside recommended wine pairings. Other Michelin-starred options include Carpe Diem Finest Fingerfood and Restaurant Ikarus, both of which were established by Red Bull founder Dietrich Mateschitz.
