Dining in Tirol

They say the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. It's the same way with women. Fortunately, mouthwatering farm-to-fork experiences are available year round in Tirol – at rustic Alpine pasture huts and on-mountain eateries, at traditional country inns and at award-winning fine-dining restaurants.

From “Tiroler Gröstl” served with a fried egg over cheese dumplings in hearty beef broth to delicious “Kiachl” with cranberry jam: Tirol is an amazing place to eat and drink, serving up some of the best food in the world. While you’re in Tirol, seek out some of the country’s quintessential foods served at roughly 120 restaurants brandishing the “Tiroler Wirtshaus” (“Tirolean Inn”) logo, indicating locally grown produce on their menus. These restaurants across the land strive not only to welcome guests with the bespoke and warm Tirolean hospitality, they also source vegetables and meats from local farmers. Tirol has its share of epicurean eateries, too: All in all, Tirol’s best fine dining restaurants have received more than 110 chef's toques. The best way to connect with the places most revered among Tirol food experiences is to visit the ten designated “Regions of Culinary Excellence”. Or, experience where Tirol’s quality agricultural products begin by visiting our farms and food producers on specially designated Taste of Place Tours. Is there anything better than taking a walk in the great outdoors of Tirol with a cheese dairy or a schnapps distillery as worthwhile destination?
