Das Rössl

Austrian in Nationalpark Kalkalpen

The pick of places to dine in charming Windischgarsten, this oyster-grey guesthouse cooks up hearty dishes including rib-eye steak, riesling-marinated pork and river trout. Carb-loading for outdoor adventures isn't a problem – every main comes with potato salad. Upstairs are 26 simple but comfortable rooms (doubles from €84); breakfast is available every day for overnight guests and included in the rate.

Kids get smaller portions such as child-size schnitzels.
