Restaurant Obauer, Salzburg
It’s worth the 45-minute train ride from Salzburg to sample the cuisine of Karl and Rudolph Obauer, who worked for some of the greatest chefs of Europe before opening their own little hotel and restaurant in this pristine hilltop village. Their kitchen turns out fare that is regional, seasonal, creative, traditional and modern, hot and cold, and usually all of the above at the same time. Try the venison terrine, the Werfen lamb, the Pongau lamb, or other dishes made with local ingredients.
