Food fit for a king

The team from Landgasthof Kaiserbrunn, who have a long history themselves, have put that of the Habsburgs’ onto their menu. The small inn in Reichenau an der Rax, Austria, which serves up a range of regional Austrian dishes to hungry guests, has dug out some of the most traditional recipes of the Habsburg era.

With dishes such as “Gersteneintopf” (a hearty soup of meat, vegetables and pearl barley) from the era of Kaiser Maximilian I (1459-1519) appearing on the menu as well as pastries with “kaiserlich und k├Âniglich” flair, the food at the guesthouse gives a true taste of the Royal Household.

The Habsburg family, which dates back to the 11th Century, has a long culinary history and is one that married owners Egon and Brigitte Kufner and their head chef Christoph Schneider are keen to revive. The guesthouse, which was built in 1839 before it began running commercially in 1874, has found the majority of its historical recipes in Austrian archives.
