The Goldene Kugel – hundreds of years of beer history

The Goldene Kugel, situated at Judengasse 3, right in the middle of Salzburg’s Old Town, is a very special kind of restaurant. The narrow, venerable building has stood on this spot for centuries. Its first recorded mention, as “Guglbräu”, was in 1327. The building, which is a registered historical landmark, is home to an authentic tavern culture: we love getting together over a good beer, with great food too, of course – in a convivial and hospitable atmosphere. The Goldene Kugel aims to ensure that locals feel at home and that visitors to Salzburg enjoy its great atmosphere. Because a tavern like ours should be somewhere everyone wants to visit, is happy to stay and is keen to return to.

Our beers and speciality dishes also have a unique history. We serve outstanding beers from the Munich‑based Augustiner Brewery, and the best of Bavarian and Austrian cuisine. We place a high value on regional produce and home‑made products – and on creating flavours you won’t forget!

We have a total capacity of 300 seats in a rustic atmosphere over 3 floors. Wherever you decide to sit, you can choose either to serve yourself from the buffet or to be served at your table. Whether you’re after a light snack or a lavish meal, you will always be served what we love best: freshly‑prepared traditional dishes made with local ingredients.

Even our menu takes the traditional approach:

  • From 11 am we serve warm Leberkas (traditional meatloaf) and fresh Weißwürscht (sausage speciality).
  • From 11.30 am we serve lunch from our kitchen with traditional meat dishes.
  • In the afternoon, we provide snacks and nibbles including specialities such as Essigwurscht (sliced sausage with onions and vinaigrette) or Saures Rindfleisch (cold beef salad with vinaigrette).
  • From 5.30 pm our full menu is available, with speciality meat dishes and all the traditional tavern fare. We offer different Salzburg specialities each week, too.

A warm welcome to you! We hope you enjoy your meal and wish you a pleasant visit to Salzburg.
