Sachertorte

Favorite thing Well this is another specialty, that you don't have to miss.

Sachertorte is a chocolate cake, invented by Franz Sacher in 1832 for Klemens Wenzel von Metternich in Vienna, Austria. It is one of the most famous Viennese culinary specialties.

The trademark for the "Original Sachertorte" was registered by the Hotel Sacher, which was built in 1876 by the son of Franz Sacher.
Nobody knows the real recipe because is well kept secret... You can imagine why.

It consists of two layers of dense, not overly sweet chocolate cake with a thin layer of apricot jam in the middle and dark chocolate icing with shreds of chocolate on the top and sides. It is traditionally served with whipped cream without any sugar in it.

Apfelstrudel

Favorite thing Apfelstrudel is a traditional pastry of Austria and a popular dish in many countries that once belonged to the Austro-Hungarian empire. It is the most widely known kind of strudel.

Well if you like sweet, don't miss that, you are inside the country who is really specialist in making that, in every way, so taste it, well the portions are usually pretty big, so enjoy it and lick your mustache :)

Fondest memory Although it was only a brief stop to have lunch on my way to Bolzano by car- the drive from Munich was great, and I remember having a wonderful Austrian pastry from a cafe in downtown Innsbruck while looking out the window with a spectacular view of the Austrian Alps.

Favorite thing The indoor market is by the river bank, where Marktgraben reaches the river. Probably nothing special by some people's standards, we always find markets in Europe to be so much nice than those at home. The veg & especially the fruit is just so much bigger and looks so much more appealing. As well as fruit and veg there are a variety of stalls selling wurstel, breads and pretzels.
