As an art hotel and restaurant, the Blaue Gans is an ideal gastronomic partner: Like the Salzburg Festival, it is both a guardian of tradition and a trendsetter. The wonderful old vault, surrounded by contemporary art, or the inviting garden are great settings to enjoy their home-made food. I have long been addicted to the Schotter-Schnitzel, a Wiener Schnitzel cut into strips.
