It was on a Steyr River island, reached by a network of pathways and footbridges, that Josef Wernl developed his 19th-century armaments factories—long since transformed into an architecturally modernistic complex housing the city's influential technical school. So expect a predominantly young crowd at Josi, Otto and Jürgen Klement's small, chatty Wirsthaus. Two traditional oberösterreichischer on the menu are recommended: Rogl-Strohsau roast-pork filet (€13.50) and a hefty bowl of Beuscherl soup cooked with veal and lamb (€4.80).
