Cherish, Custom & Cuisine
The cosiness & hospitality of the Zillertal truly goes through the stomach. Winston Churchill once said: Nourish your body well, make it a home where your soul will swell."
Zillertaler Krapfen, (traditional savoury crepes), Schliachta-Nudeln (ribbon pasta in cheese sauce) or traditional Melchermuas (dairymen's pancake) are certain to make your mouth water!
These delicacies are an integral part of Zillertal tradition and are served in summertime at the Schmankerlfest (Food Festival) in Hippach and the Krapfen Festival in Schwendau.
The region's best
Great food is yet another pleasing aspect of typical Zillertal hospitality.
Regional Zillertal Cuisine has long been awarded with the well-deserved rating of "very recommendable" by food-loving connoisseurs.
The crowning glory of any meal
The crowning glory of any meal is a shot of the finest schnapps. Only the best - mostly hand-picked - fruits are used for the distillate.
