In Salzburg, we dined at a delicious restaurant a short walk from our apartment – Bärenwirt. This restaurant is just up the hill from the Altstadt on the way to Augustiner Bräu. We walked by this restaurant earlier in our trip, and we were so glad that we returned! Dan and I dined on pumpkin soup, a meat platter, schweinschnitzel and German chocolate cake. YUM!! This may have been the best schnitzel I had on the trip (close with my Hallstatt schnitzel), and this was certainly our best meal in Salzburg. Our waitress spoke perfect English and was extremely friendly. The meal ended with a complementary bowl of gummy bears – so cute! When the waitress saw that we were excited about the gummy bears, she gave us some extras in a to go bag!
Bärenwirt also claims to have “the best friend chicken.” Craig tried it, and he seemed to like it. Growing up in Virginia, it was hard for me to get on board with this. However, it seemed like a valiant attempt.
