In the charming Christmas village, right next to the post office, the Baumgartner's balconied restaurant, here since 1972, opens to sweeping views of the broad Weisser Heide meadows and Steyr River valley. Full-course lunches and dinners range €9.50-10.60 (except for top-of-the-list roast duck with dumplings and cabbage, €11); vegetarian meals range €5.90-8.90. For dessert, try not resisting the house specialty: Cremeschnitten layer cake (€2.20).
