Stiftskeller St. Peter

Stiftskeller St. Peter Review

Legends swirl about the famous St. Peter's Beer Cellar. Locals claim that Mephistopheles met Faust here, others say Charlemagne dined here, and some believe Columbus enjoyed a glass of its famous Salzburg Stiegl beer just before he set sail for America in 1492. But there is no debating the fact that this place—first mentioned in a document dating back to 803—is Austria's oldest restaurant. It is also one of the most dazzling dining experiences in Salzburg. Choose between the fairly elegant, dark-wood-panel Prälatenzimmer (Prelates' Room) or one of several less-formal banqueting rooms. Along with other Austrian standards, you can dine on fish caught in local rivers and lakes.
