    This Bavarian specialty made of choux pastry is a classic! Super delicious and huge are these cream puffs in the mountain inn Almhütte with its own confectionery – rightly also called Windbeutelalm.

    The “cradle” of the apricot lies in China. The fruit was cultivated there 4,000 years ago before Alexander the Great brought it to Europe. The Romans brought it to the Wachau, where it has been cultivated for around 2,000 years. Since 1996, the name “Wachauer Marille g.U.” has been a protected designation of origin within the EU.

    Yellow, red, blue, dotted, small, large, round and oblong, waxy and floury anyway – potato varieties are like stars in the sky. For Hans Moser and Andrea, this is always an incentive to cultivate unusual “newcomers” in addition to popular standard varieties here in Salzburg’s Lungau region every year.

    The names such as “LoRe-Habidere”, “LoRe BlueGin”, “STERN Tschin” and “Mühlviertel Highland Whisky” say it all! Aromatic spirits that encapture the special sense of the Mühlviertel region.

    Most is a typical Upper Austrian beverage. Fine-bubbled, refreshing, powerful, and fruity-tart, it not only characterizes the drink menus of local inns but also, thanks to the many fruit trees used for making Most, the landscape and cuisine of the region.
