Indulging holiday on Lake Hallstatt

Gourmets and foodies will feel at home in the towns of the UNESCO World Heritage region of Hallstatt Dachstein Salzkammergut: Because around Lake Hallstatt and the idyllic Gosau valley, scents, dishes, tastes and recipes from all directions come together.

From the depths of the lake

Eating fish around Lake Hallstatt is a must; regardless of whether it comes as a hearty fish soup, smoked fillet or whole on the plate. Because in the heart of Austria, where the lakes and rivers still have drinking water quality, and numerous fish such as whitefish, trout, char, pike, carp, eel and Zander are located, there is a wide selection of renowned fish specialists that offer fish of the highest quality.

Fabulous desserts

Whether daring ice cream creations or the Austrian preference for Desserts: sweet tooth’s will definitely get their calories in Bad Goisern, Gosau, Hallstatt or Obertraun: Apple or plum cakes, cream cakes, strudel of every kind or the delicious pancakes with traditional Austrian apricot jam from the Wachau all mean that the holiday region of Dachstein Salzkammergut is completely unsuitable for dieting.

Whether sweet or savoury, direct from Lake Hallstatt, in the Gosau valley or on the mountain, in the subsequent selection you will find the most popular "culinary temples" of the region at a glance. That only leaves us to wish you a “guten Appetit!” and enjoy your meal!

Enjoy your meal!
