Local food & drink
Variety for everyone
Austrians are particularly proud of their food and Lungau is no exception. There are all kinds of restaurants available – from traditional guesthouses to pizzerias (we’re only an hour from Italy), modern European, organic food, pasta, steak and chips, or fine dining. Most of the hotels here have at least one restaurant at which passing trade is welcome, although some are better than others, and there are a number of dishes we think everyone should try at least once.
If you’ve never had a Lungau Käse Spätzl (cheesy noodles with crispy onion sprinkles) you haven’t lived!
Kaiserschmarrn is literally ‘Emperor’s rubbish’ but actually roughly chopped pancake served with icing sugar and plum or apple sauce.
The local 'Brettl Jause'
This is basically a smorgasbord of local hams, meats, cheeses, pickles and butter, all served with freshly baked bread rolls. All you need is a big knife and your fingers… it’s a local favourite and definitely one to try.
