In Linz restaurants, you can try the most popular regional dishes. A very common main course is a Schnitzel, which is prepared from selected pork or veal and served with various vegetable garnishes. Some upscale restaurants prepare meat dishes using wine and adding spices that give the meat special flavors. Various types of goulash are also widespread. To complement hearty meat dishes, many locals order a glass or two of cold beer.
The region inherited many gastronomic traditions from the Czech Republic and Austria. In local restaurants, you can try traditional KnÃ¶del, which are very common in these countries. This is how they call boiled dumplings, which may be filled with meat and various vegetables. The most interesting restaurants specializing in regional cuisine can be found near Marketplatz.
The square itself is the location of the largest and most popular market in town where one can find the most popular meat delicacies and cheeses from local farms. Not far from Marketplatz, there is also a historic brewery whose visitors are offered interesting tours including a tasting of the best varieties of "the amber drink".

Themed wine tours are held in Burg Linz Castle. During such tours, you can try not only the best types of wine but also popular regional dishes prepared according to old recipes.
