Fodor's Expert Review Kirchenwirt

$$$ Gosau am Dachstein Austrian

Adjacent to Gosau's pretty parish church, this inn is evidence of the venerable tradition of placing town restaurants next to houses of worship (on Sunday farmers would attend the service then head for the nearest table and discuss the past week's events). Today, the restaurant is a popular place, with local specialties and lovely views from the terrace. Mentioned in town records as early as 1596, the inn here has now been much restored and built up in typical modern Alpine style of natural wood, mounted antlers, hunter greens, and bright reds. The current hosts, the Peham family, enjoy sharing the region's cultural traditions, and host folk dances and brass bands as well as offer guided hiking trips.
