Favorite Dish: When you click on my link below you may see the many different small rooms,the restaurant may offer for your private festivities, and all of them are funished and decorated slightly different in an absolutely great way.
On the corner of the Altstadt, close to the river Inn, you can find the Ottoburg. Here is a little history of the Ottoburg from the website : http://www.tiscover.at/
The Ottoburg is a Gothic residential tower built by the city wall in the 15th century. Today nothing remains of the moat but remnants of the wall near the ‘Ottoburg’. Commissioned by Maximilian I, the castle was named after the last Duke of Andechs, Otto VIII. The grey facade is brightened up by red and white shutters.
Although both the purpose and the owners of the building have changed frequently throughout the years, the ‘Ottoburg’ has long housed an excellent restaurant.
The parlors with their cross vaults and stellar vaults are worth visiting. It is the oldest preserved building of Herzog-Friedrich-Strasse. In front of it stands a memorial to the Tirolean freedom fighters of 1809, created by Christian Plattner.
And as it is a restaurant, we decided that we had to try it! So let's go inside and have some lunch!
The restaurant consists of several small rooms, each with its own ambience. We ate downstairs. From the window by our cozy table we could watch the pedestrians on Herzog-Friedrich Strasse. Waitress was friendly and attentive. Chef came out to say hello.(One of them.) They have a chef for each food category! Meat, vegetable, dessert etc. A dinner for two, including 2 Austrian entrees, a shared dessert, and more than a few beers cost just under 60 euros.
Favorite Dish: Austrian fare
Hmmmmmmm, and the food was delicious! I had some great tasting pasta, yummie!
The first floor of the Ottoburg restaurant didn't look so special, so we went up to the second. It really looked gorgeous! It certainly is worth while to go here for lunch or dinner
