The Bärenwirt is a typical Brewery Restaurant with a typical menu. It is located off the beaten tracks of Salzburg on the Old City side of the Salzach with a nice view over the River. It serves nice local beer in a stein. We have had a Wiener Schnitzel (the real one from veal) and the Backhendl (Fried Chicken). They... More

It was a bit tricky to find without specific directions but we were glad we made the effort. Food was delicious and very reasonable. Asparagus is in season in May and we had one dish with salmon, asparagus and polenta and another with moist and delicious fried chicken and potatoe salad, yum, yum. We ate outside with some thunder and... More

Went to Barenwirt with the wife + kids (4 + 2) for an evening meal. It was raining outside but they had no problems with 2 small children in the bar, they have side alcoves that suit the purpose earlier and are presumably more romantic later in the evening. Had an awesome knodel (dumpling) in spicy goulash, was expecting a... More

For those who are hungry, want typical Austrian food in the best price just go there. Very nice environment with separate smoking section, excellent service and very polite staff. Do not heitate to taste the beer soup and drink a lot of their house beer. The last order for the kitchen is at 21,30.

My wife and I ate dinner here during our visit to Salzburg. A little bit of an awkward walk from our hotel during the winter months (dark)...it is located on the main street leaving the historic district. More of a cozy atmosphere for a German style restaurant. We were the only english speaking customers. Food and service were very good...large... More

Barenwirt is a few blocks from Augustiner Braustubl, but still serves the monastery's great beer. But, a much more serene atmosphere. Menu offered great schnitzel as well as other European fare. Small veranda overlooking river. Good choice for better food and more conversation.

We returned 3 times, re-routing trips & going out of our way to dine here. The little old frau who would sing & serve way too much food for the mere phennigs was the greatest. This was 1980/81 and I am so happy the Barenwirt is still going.

We actually stopped in to Baerenwirt because the Augustinerbraeu was not yet open, but we were in the neighborhood and hungry. It was a pleasant surprise, because we got a seat out on the balcony from which there was a view of the Danube and the other side of Salzburg. Our waiter was friendly, and the large portions of food... More

On our last night in Salzburg (and second-to-last in Europe), my wife and I wanted something local. The desk clerk at our hotel recommended the Bärenwirt, and we couldn't have been happier! Just a short walk across the river from the Kurpark and Mirabell Gardens, the Bärenwirt offers several tables outdoors, overlooking the river. The food was excellent! And although... More

The Bärenwirt, located in the historic district Mülln, is one of the oldest inns in Salzburg. Hospitality plays an important role since 1663 and the traditional inn is run with a lot of personal commitment. At the Bärenwirt you enjoy traditional Austrian specialities and beer of the Augustiner Bräu, the oldest brewery of Salzburg. We recommend our fried chicken, which is known as the best one of Austria. The sunny terrace with view onto the river Salzach and the Kapuzinerberg, one of the two hills in the center of Salzburg, and the cozy guest rooms invite you to spend a relaxing and pleasurably time at the Bärenwirt. If you are planning a festivity with your family and friends the Bärenwirt provides the right offer. The package is called “Feiere dein Fest” and includes roast pork with dumpling and „sauerkraut“ and beer, which is drawn by yourself.
