Salzburg has recently opened more and more fully vegan places and some restaurants became very vegan friendly but it took quite a while for me to find out about all of them, when I just moved here. So first of all here is a quick overview of the best places for you. In the second part of this article I provide a short description of every location as well as photos of the food (most important part, and by the way I took the photos myself unless marked otherwise).

Franz-Fischer-Hütte a vegetarian & vegan lodge in the mountains at Zederhaus (Lungau) (1 1/2 h car ride away from Salzburg), Am Wald 64, 5584 Zederhaus, Austria
This fully vegan cozy restaurant is located very central and offers a variety of dishes. From colorful salads with self-made plant cheese (absolutely delcious!), soups to sandwiches, raw cakes and fresh smoothies. I personally go there a lot, because the food is just amazing every time. You can also sit outside, which is especially nice during summer.

Heart of Joy
This place is located very central, close to Mirabellplatz. Their cakes are wonderful. Besides cakes they also offer salads, sandwiches and delicious currys. This place offers enough space to visit also with bigger groups and you can sit outside as well.
Tula Bistro at Künstlerhaus (artist house) Salzburg
The Tula Bistro has just recently opened and decided to offer only vegetarian and vegan meals due to ethical and environmental reasons. It’s also located quite central, close to Mozartplatz. The menu includes tapas, salads, main dishes and cakes. This place offers enough space to visit also with bigger groups and you can as well sit outside.
This little store is located right in between the oldtown area of Salzburg when you pass through the main streets around Getreidegasse/Mozart’s birth place it’s just a few minutes walk to get there and grab some delicious vegan, glutenfree waffles with any topping you could imagine.

This restaurant offers a variety of delicious chinese dishes and provides a large vegan menu including vegan starters, main dishes and desserts. It’s located super central in the oldtown area and is a nice place where you can also sit with bigger groups. It’s interior is also quite appealing in chinese style and in summer it’s nice to sit outside.
This little restaurant offers delicous pizzas made from 100% organic ingredients and includes a large vegan menu. You can also choose a full grain pizza base with hemp seeds. As for me I really care about the atmosphere and interior of the place where I eat, so this place doesn’t have the most charming interior, but the pizzas are still amazing. And in summer it’s nice to sit outside in the evening.

The Glass Garden is a fine dining restaurant which is part of the 5 star Hotel Schloss Mönchstein. They offer a nice vegan menu (for 68 Euros). This place is certainly quite expensive as it’s a 5 star location and the kitchen has a michelin star but it might be a great option for a special occasion and I highly appreciate their fully vegan menu.
Pan Café in Hallein
This place is not in Salzburg but in Hallein which is about 15 min car ride from Salzburg. It’s a small city that you might pass by when exploring the area around Salzburg so I thought it’s worth mentioning. In the Pan Café they offer vegan & vegetarian breakfast, sandwiches, cakes and are specialized in great coffees. During summer it’s really nice to sit outside.

Franz-Fischer-Hütte at Zederhaus (Lungau) (1 1/2 h car ride away from Salzburg)
If you are staying in Salzburg for a longer time and are exploring the region you might want to stop by at one of the first fully vegetarian & vegan lodges in the mountains of Austria, which has just opened up recently. As part of their sustainability efforts they also focus on certified organic products from the region.

I hope this overview was helpful to navigate through Salzburg and I hopefully didn’t miss out on any vegan delicousness. If you have discovered another one, let me know.
