Good to know

In Austria, just as in the home of our 4**** Hotel ADAPURA in Salzburgerland, there are many oddities when it comes to food and drink. Let us explain three famous specialties:

Where does the name Kaiserschmarrn come from?
There are many myth-enshrouded stories centred around Kaiserschmarrn (sugared pancake with raisins). And they all revolve around one person: Emperor Franz Joseph I. (1830-1916) just loved this tasty, cooked dessert. One nice version goes like this: A simple peasant family got an unexpected visit by Emperor Franz l., who lost his way while hunting and got surprised by poor weather. The farmwoman used what little she had at home to cook up a sweet dish for the Emperor.

He was impressed by the dish and praised the her, whereupon she said: "Oh, but it's just a Schmarrn (nonsense)." The Emperor replied: "Yes, but a real Kaiserschmarrn (Emperor's nonsense)."

Why are the Salzburger Nockerl (dumplings) called Salzburger Nockerl?
Nockerl comes from their dumpling-like shape. Usually, it's three large dumplings, which in local lore stand for the three Salzburg local mountains: Mönchsberg, Kapuzinerberg and Gaisberg.

What does Damenspitz mean?
You know it and have probably experienced it yourself before. Damenspitz is the state of being almost half-drunk, which leads straight to being nicely drunk. Cheers!
