Salzburg’s eclectic dining scene skips from the traditional to the super-trendy to the downright touristy. This is a city where schnitzel is served with a slice of history in vaulted taverns; where you can dine in Michelin-starred finery or be serenaded by a warbling Maria wannabe. Save euros by taking advantage of the lunchtime Tagesmenü (fixed menu) served at most places.

Don't Miss: Top Snack Spots

Want to grab a bite on the hoof or pick up some picnic fixings? Here's where to head:

  • Grünmarkt This market hums with hungry locals in search of fresh-made bread, regional cheeses, hams, fruit and enormous pretzels.
  • Stiftsbäckerei St Peter When you spy an old watermill you know you've arrived at this bakery. Since medieval times, it has been baking great sourdough loaves in a wood-fired oven.
  • Kaslöchl Blink and you'll miss this tiny shop jam-packed with cheeses – from fresh ones with herbs to tangy Alpine varieties.
  • IceZeit This hole-in-the-wall ice-cream parlour does some of the finest gelato in town, with flavours such as chocolate-chilli and sour-cream-cranberry.
