Holidays to everyone's taste
Gourmets and food lovers will discover their own corner of heaven here in the Tennengau. No matter where you go, you will come across an amazing array of culinary highlights. No wonder, then, that Tennengau was discovered by the organization GENUSS REGION ÖSTERREICH and officially recognized for its fabulous Tennengau AlmKäse cheeses and its outstanding Tennengau Mountain Lamb. AlmKäse and Mountain Lamb both have a special role to play in Tennengau's culinary world. Furthermore, the exceptional food and drinks you encounter practically everywhere in Tennengau generally involve fresh, organically produced ingredients.
The "Tennengau AlmKäse & Mountain Lamb" culinary region is comprised of 40 "GenussPartner" businesses, all of whom are dedicated to profiling these ingredients in the best ways possible. These businesses included cheese dairies, regional eateries and an array of other local supporters.
ENJOYMENT EVERY STEP OF THE WAY
How about taking a hike out to one of Tennengau's mountain cheese dairies? In fact, five different tours lead you to such huts, where you will be served famous organic AlmKäse cheeses produced with milk from hay-fed cattle. If you prefer to explore the region by bicycle, you can also enjoy a ride with a culinary twist from one producer or inn to the next. Take a bike ride of 21 kilometers along the "Cheese Tour" from Kuchl to Bad Vigaun, or perhaps via the "Marble Tour" leading from Adnet via Puch to Oberalm. If you would prefer to spend even longer in the saddle, take the "Salt Tour" from Hallein to Golling, where the culinary highlights are accompanied by many of the region's fascinating cultural- and sightseeing attractions.
