Restaurants in the Kleinwalsertal

The Kleinwalsertal in Austria is one of the Gourmet regions of Austria. “We don't grow much, but we have beef and game. And that’s what we make our gourmet products from.” This is what we were told during our visit. There's a little more, as we can try in restaurants in the Kleinwalsertal in Riezlern and Mittelberg. Eat well in Kleinwalsertal, we tested this on our autumn visit. We can recommend these restaurants to you.




Restaurants in the Kleinwalsertal - Wirtshaus Hoheneck

“We stood on the summit of the Widderstein and declared the area that we could see from above to be the reference region for our products,” laughs Jürgen Denk as he welcomes us to dinner at his Hoheneck inn in Mittelberg. From Munich to Bodensee,, from Bavaria to Styria - these are the regions from which one can travel in the Tavern Hoheneck sources its ingredients. Jürgen Denk and his wife Kirsten, who as a sommelier serves the wine accompaniment to our menu, run one of the restaurants in Kleinwalsertal that value sustainability. Your ingredients don’t travel long distances. We chose the menu “Önsche Walser Chuche” (our Walser cuisine). That's that Heir of the Walser Kitchen - authentic, contemporary and inventive.

Authentic and contemporary

What came out of it can be seen: there is a greeting from dr Chuche (greeting from the kitchen) Ravioli from Ausseer Arctic char with a pesto from North Tyrolean Ruccola. The culinary region of Kleinwalsertal game and beef is represented with a starter, a strudel bag of venison with Eferdinger red cabbage - and yes, it is an iced cabbage. There was also Wachau Apricot. The intermediate course was an essence of porcini mushrooms with ravioli from Kästen (chestnuts) from Burgenland and caramelized pumpkin seeds from Styria. A rack of lamb was served as the main course, which even convinced me.

I usually prefer fish dishes when lamb is on the menu, but this lamb was excellent. There was also polenta and paprika vegetables. The dessert trio consisted of a caramel dumpling, a ragout of rosemary and mirabelle plum and semi-frozen plums from Stanzer. If you want, you can also get the “Önsche Walser Chuche” vegetarian. How it tastes describes Christina of City, Sea Country on her blog.
