Alpengasthof Dielalm

This was possibly the best setting for an afternoon coffee and Kaiserschmarrn yet.

It was a gorgous Sunday, and I went on an Autumn walk to Schloss Hohenwerfen (It is a 40min drive outside of Salzburg). This particular weekend it was closed for Winter season, but was beautiful with the gold and crimson Autumn colours.

After walking up to the castle, I wanted the view of the castle itself, so decided to drive up the mountain nearby. After a slightly precarious drive up the road come track, the woods opened up and Dielalm appeared. It is situated in a suntrap – and in the afternoon just as the sun was beginning to set, it was stunning. It has a small farm, with animals roaming round, lots of play things for the kids, and plenty space on the open terrace looking down the valley.

The Kaiserschmarrn came with apple sauce, which I really enjoyed (although I missed the different textures of plum jam – the apple was pureed and very smooth). The ratio of jam to pancake was quite big, but the moist pancake batter ensured that it didn’t become dry. If you like a slightly more eggy pancake mix, then this dish was great. And no raisins (for all the raisin haters)!

Dielalm is a definite recommendation for a quick espcape to the mountains by car, especially on a sunny day to be enjoyed on the terrace. It is a slight drive from Salzburg, but perfect for a weekend trip. Enjoying a view like that with your coffee and Kaiserschmarrn clears your mind before you delve back into Salzburg for the week!
