Three local dining favourites
Tyrol and Innsbruck are known for their distinctive cuisine, where the Alps put their own stamp on traditional dishes. Here are a few of the most famous and popular restaurants in the Olympic city.
Ottoburg – the best views
Ottoburg is located in one of the oldest buildings in Innsbruck's old town and has what are maybe the city's best views. From the second floor, guests can look out over the Inn River, as well as the Northern Mountain Range and Goldenes Dachl, Innsbruck's most famous landmark. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and offers high-quality Austrian gourmet cuisine. Ottoburg is perfect for your last meal in the city or a romantic dinner.
Stiftskeller – a beer place with a younger crowd
A lively beer lounge and restaurant in the centre of Innsbruck's Old Town that's popular with a young clientele, Stiftskeller is the perfect place to get a taste of Tyrolean cuisine. From Austrian classics such as roast pork, schnitzel and goulash to local specialties like bacon buns, you are sure to find something tasty here. In summer, you can lounge outside in the beer garden (with a litre of beer in hand, naturally), while in winter, Skiftskeller has its own Christmas garden.
Goldenes Dachl – a favourite among locals
The restaurant at the famous landmark Goldenes Dachl is frequented by locals and tourists alike, as well as actors from the neighbouring theatre. Here, you can be sure to find a good mix of people, all of whom enjoy delicious Tyrolean food as well as a beer or a spritzer or two, of course. The hosts offer Tyrolean hospitality to everyone who walks through the door, whether it's just for a coffee, a quick lunch, or a leisurely dinner.
