Fine dining of the highest caliber: Best-of-Wachau label
Certified “Best-of-Wachau” businesses have been ensuring top enjoyment from regionally typical lodgings, food and drink since 2012.  They consider themselves the flagships of the region and are synonymous with excellent quality that visitors can see and taste.
This quality label is awarded only to businesses that meet strict criteria in terms of ambience and that take a highly cultivated approach to fine wining and dining. Members agree to preserve traditions and aspects of cultural identity that have evolved organically over the years. Yet they are also innovative in further developing their own products and services to provide even greater quality and comfort.
Best-of-Wachau hosts offer excellent quality and an authentic Wachau experience. Their cuisine relies on homemade specialties coupled with regional products and close ties to food producers in the area. You can look forward to award-winning gourmet cuisine as well as traditional, down-to-earth country inn fare.
Our Best-of-Wachau hosts warmly welcome you to the Wachau, a UNESCO World Heritage landscape.
