Food and Drink in Austria

Foodies will adore Vorarlberg's Bergkäse cheese, Styria's Weissburgunder wines and pumpkin seed oil. Warm up with hearty Austrian fare like spicy goulash in the Alps, tuck into Wiener Schnitzel with potato salad in the city, washed down with gold-hued beer. And don't forget to save room for fluffy apple strudel or chocolatey Sacher Torte.

The Great Viennese Bake Off

Sachertorte. It is the world’s sweetest culinary secret, has caused bitter legal entanglements and is yet still considered Vienna’s most recognised hallmark, together with St. Stephen’s Cathedral and the Lipizzan horses.
