Aside from hiking, the nature and the fresh air, there’s another important factor that makes this time-out so special: the unique cuisine of the country and specialities of the region. Find out more on our HikingBlog about the delights of Europe's mountain worlds, what makes them so special and what culinary specialities you can look forward to on your next hiking holiday.
Local cuisine with tradition
Simple, natural, regional and high-quality – these are the ingredients for the cuisine of Europe’s mountain worlds. Here, in amongst the impressive natural landscapes, time moves slower. And that’s a good thing. You find yourself a world away from the fast-food chains, convenience products and restaurants with food from all over the world, here you can still find exactly what the innkeepers in these regions believe in – a cuisine with traditional, down-to-earth dishes and particularly high-quality ingredients directly from the local area. The focus lies on using local products and, where possible, home-grown ingredients that are in season. If it’s not available, it won’t be on the plate. And you can taste this. The use of regional ingredients has also become more important again in many households, and in addition to organic products, people are trying to get food directly from the producer or farmer next door. This is not only particularly sustainable, but also a great benefit for our health and regional added value.
