History proves that you'll be well looked after: people have been gathering here for centuries, ever since 1350. The old walls with their vaulted ceilings and cosy nooks have seen plenty in their day; nothing can shake them these days. Smokers are welcome: there is a smoking lounge in the Schanigarten (pavement cafe), while everywhere else is non-smoking.
Take the courtly, bourgeois cuisine of Vienna, mix in some alpine produce and the easy ways of the south, all seasoned with a pinch of innovation and there you have it - attractive and modern Salzburg cuisine.

A place, where you are transported back to the good old days and where you can indulge in culinary delights. The centrepiece of our house seats 50 people. Relax: we are happy to serve you from 12:00 to 24:00 (food is served till 22:00).
Authentic. Simple. Regional.
"Classic Austrian dishes", meticulously prepared offal, forgotten recipes, underrated cuts of meat, interesting vegetable dishes and the great imperial tradition of desserts as preserved by our confectioner Karl-Heinz - that's how we cook.

Good food is supposed be simple, but not simple to produce. The finest quality products and precise craftsmanship are indispensable. Everything we know is poured into our dishes. And we're more than happy to pass this knowledge on to our apprentices; it's a valuable part of our culture.
Our Wine Archive (Weinarchiv) used to be a jazz cellar with vaults that are centuries old. It now stores our precious stock of wines. We open it up for festivities from 8 to 50 people, and call it "La Tavolata" which means something like: "Let's all have a great evening together at this long table." You can be sure that whatever we serve up has been home-made at our food manufactory and presented on an array of dainty plates and bowls. Everybody gets stuck in, helping themselves and their neighbours. Sharing is caring!
We are no strangers to allergies, food sensitivities and alternative dietary habits.
Just let us know and we'll be able to cater to you and your requirements.
Blaue Gans Open Air. An urban oasis as a Mediterranean dream world in the middle of the city: olive trees, figs and palms, a spectacular view of the Mönchsbergwand included.

Our Schanigarten (pavement cafe) is open from midday until midnight when the weather is fine.
Our Gasthaus is ideal for all manner of parties and celebrations. We have a lot of experience setting up exclusive events or a cosy birthday bash.

kitchen herbs in our interior courtyard. In our case, we've got 20 different varieties exuding a pleasantly aromatic fragrance in the interior courtyard. In the evenings, the futuristic raised beds are backlit, producing an atmospheric effect. The herb garden also gave us the name of the Glashaus, our conference room.
We love working with mint at our food manufactory: adding some aroma to fresh spring water at breakfast, our home-made lemonades or to add the finishing touch to our rhubarb Prosecco - its elegant spice and uplifting fragrance are surely balm for the soul.
Peppermint, lemon balm, mountain thyme, red and green basil, rosemary, lovage, verbena, savory, chamomile, wild thyme, blood dock, angelica, chickweed, etc. are carefully cultivated by our chefs to enhance our dishes perfectly.
