The Herzl will pull at your heart strings. It smells like grandma‘s kitchen and tastes like it too. That is exactly why the locals love it. The restaurant preserves the ambiance of a rustic fifteenth-century inn: heartfelt hospitality and delicious food, wood-panelled dining room with stone pillars and historic decor. Very contemporary though is its interpretation of classic dishes: Austrian, innovative, lighter and healthier.

Restaurant Herzl
Menu What food! Schnitzel, roasts, trout and vegetarian creations. Then there are Salzburger Nockerl, a sweet soufflé, Kaiserschmarren, a pancake fit for an emperor, and the rich chocolate Rigo Jancsi, a mouth-watering chocolate cake. According to the legend, the dessert was created by a Belgian Princess for her lover, the gypsy Baron Rigo Jancsi. As authentic as it is elegant, of impeccable quality, welcoming, that is what the Herzl wants to be-because that is how it has always been.

Events and Specials
Family Celebrations Birthdays, baptisms, engagements or simply an enjoyable Sunday out: when the family gathers together it should be as if grandma has cooked and mom is spoiling her loved-ones. In the Herzl's Hunting Salon you dine cosily and undisturbed, choosing from two traditional menus.
Salzburg's heart The Herzl nestles in the centre of Salzburg-a World Heritage Site-just a few steps from Salzburg Festival concert halls and the famed Getreidegasse. The Herzl has long been a favourite with artists like Herbert von Karajan, Leonard Bernstein, Helmut Lohner and Curd Jürgens and their fans. It has provided nourishment for the opera world in particular. At the rustic refectory table the architect Clemens Holzmeister was chosen to design the Festival Hall and Herbert von Karajan laid the foundation for the Salzburg Easter Festival.
