It's worth a detour on the way to Hallein along the B159 Salzachtal-Bundesstrasse about 10 km (6 miles) south of Salzburg to dine at this inviting inn, run by the same family for more than 130 years. Enjoy the cooking, the wine cellar filled with more than 100 different vintages, and the unmistakable atmosphere of this stile Salzburg house with its nicely decorated salons. Chef Ernst Kronreif uses his mother's recipes for the delicious Butternockerlsuppe
(soup broth with buttered dumplings), the Kalbsbries (calf's sweetbreads), or the Salzburger Bierfleisch (beef boiled in beer)—all Salzburgian classics and yet always so up-to-date.
