Restaurant Goldener Hirsch, Salzburg, Austria
What was once a ferrier’s shop—where locals brought their horses to be shoed—has become Salzburg’s most illustrious restaurant, favored by government officials, world-class performers, and members of the international social set. The simply sophisticated dining room pays homage to its humble ancestry with rustic Austrian wooden chairs and tables that harmonize with the wooden beams that cross the ceiling. Austrian green is featured in the traditional waiter uniforms and table linens. Hand woven in white and green, they feature the hotel’s signature stag motif. The most sought-after table in the restaurant, however, is the Karajan Table, the famous composer Herbert von Karajan’s regular spot. Chef Gernot Schiefer has created an incomparable combination of traditional Salzburg specialties accompanied by new international dishes.
