Austria's cuisine

Admittedly, not all the famous recipes of the delicious Austrian cuisine really come from Austria. Influences from Bohemia, Bavaria, Italy and of course Hungary have made Austria the great culinary nation it is today. Of course you know all the delicacies such as Wiener Schnitzel, a savoury beef goulash, a delicious roast pork with Stöcklkraut and potatoes and the famous Sacher Torte. But have you ever tasted a Tafelspitz, heard of Topfennockerln or tried Innviertler Bratknödel?

Salzburger Nockerl

Austria's culture and traditions

Have you ever heard of the magic word Alles Walzer? Within seconds, these two little words can make a whole crowd of people in Austria sway their bodies in three-four time. The name waltz comes from the expression "to waltz", i.e. to be on the move. At 60 beats per minute, the Viennese waltz is the fastest dance in the world dance programme. The popular dance developed in the 18th century and finally became a worldwide success in the 19th century thanks to pieces of music such as An der schönen blauen Donau by Johann Strauss Sohn.
