The Almtal has a lot to offer not only in terms of landscape, but also in terms of cuisine. Here you will find everything your heart desires, from typical farmer’s food to toque-winning finesse. Local fish, such as char or reinanque, come from the clear lakes. Game comes from the forests and organic meat can be bought directly from the farm. Countless cheeses from cow, sheep or goat are produced by local dairies in the region. Local sausage specialties, smoked meat from the farmer and wood-fired bread are considered very special delicacies.

Walk along the Grünaubach to the beautiful village café for breakfast or to the gourmet inn of the Almwirtinnen.

Or drive a few minutes along the Alm river to Scharnstein to the extraordinary restaurant Das Geyerhammer… and let yourself be pampered.

Whether you prepare it yourself or enjoy it in one of the many restaurants, the regional specialties are worth a trip!
