Austrian Culinary Experiences

It would be easy to associate Austria's culinary experiences only with Schnitzel and Sacher Tortes. It would also be wrong. Austrian cuisine has been influenced by neighbors of the old empire, from Hungary to Italy to the Balkans. In fact, it was the Turks who brought coffee to the Austrian capital, planting the seed for one of Vienna's most famous institutions, the coffeehouse. Austria's wines and beers are excellent, and culinary adventures in Styria and Burgenland regions are truly a delight.

As Austria extends further towards the Mediterranean, the country’s landscape changes from rugged cliffs and mountain tops to a soft, green paradise. Styria’s southern wine country is called little Tuscany for a reason: vineyards that flow into...

Schäferhof 13, 7132 Frauenkirchen, Austria

By Patti McCracken

Burgenland, Austria’s easternmost state, has a fairy-tale backstory of emperors and castles. Its modern story is more delicious. The sunny countryside produces rare tomatoes, organic lamb, and 90 percent of the country’s wine.

Herrenstraße 22, 4020 Linz, Austria
