    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is located in the St. Pöltener Strasse, but I didn´t know the correct adress. So will ask Klaus and post it then.

    Favorite Dish: You should try "Knöpfle", which is a special dish of Heidenheim. There exists a stalt and sweet version. You can try the version you like or both... They are "Knödel" or "Klösse" (does anyone know an english word for that??) served which much sauce. But delicious.
