Food & Cuisine

Austria’s unique location in central Europe means that it is influenced by a range of neighbouring countries including Germany, Hungary, Italy the Czech Republic and the Balkans. Austria’s cuisine is often described as ‘Continental’.

Common popular dishes enjoyed all throughout Austria include Rindsuppe (beef soup), Gulasch (hotpot eaten with bread, rolls or dumplings), Apfelstrudel (pastry containing apple sauce), Palatschinken (thin pancakes similar to crepes sprinkled with sugar and filled with jam, custard fruit or ice cream) and Schnitzelsemmeln (rolls filled with battered meat, often chicken or pork).

Austria’s dishes are influenced widely by the wide amount of meat available through hunts in vast countryside throughout the country. This may include Deer, Fallow Deer, Roe Deer, Boar, Hare, Pheasant, Partridge and Duck, among others.
