Tradition meets culinary delights

In the world of culinary delights, there are dishes that are more than just food. They are cultural symbols, timeless classics that embody the essence of a region. One of these indisputable masterpieces is the Wiener Schnitzel, a dish that not only delights the palate but is also deeply embedded in Austrian tradition. Here at the Restaurant & Hotel Grüner Baum, the schnitzel has become an integral part of the menu. It is one of the most common and popular dishes that we serve our guests.


The Wiener Schnitzel has long since transcended Austria's borders and has become an international ambassador for Austrian cuisine. In many parts of the world, attempts are made to recreate the authentic Wiener Schnitzel, but true (Schnitzel) lovers know that the secret lies not only in the ingredients or the preparation, but also in the tradition.

A schnitzel is just a schnitzel!?

Not every schnitzel can simply be called a Wiener schnitzel: When Wiener Schnitzel is mentioned on the menu, it refers to a veal schnitzel that is fried in clarified butter. Before breading, the meat is pounded wafer-thin and seasoned until it is then dipped in flour, egg and finally breadcrumbs (the schnitzel is not pressed into the breadcrumbs, it is simply turned in them 1-2 times). This creates this beautiful wavy, golden breading when baked, which is also known as souffling.

What is also very important to us personally is the quality of the food we use in our restaurant & hotel. True to the motto: "The best comes from our own family!", we source all our meat and sausage products from our family-owned butcher's shop, Schultes. This is an important basis for regional enjoyment, high-quality products and the best local specialties.

Conclusion: A classic, for young and old!

The Wiener Schnitzel is not only a culinary experience, but also a window into Austria's rich history and culture. It is a dish that has survived generations and has not lost its popularity over the years. If you ever have the opportunity to wander the idyllic streets of Zell am See, don't miss out on this delicious piece of culture at our Restaurant Grüner Baum. Because our schnitzel is not just a meal - it is an experience that enchants the senses and nourishes the soul.
