After long walk with local guide Peter we stop at Rübezahl alm. We got free of charge local speciality Kaiserschmarn. It was delicoious and a place is fantastic. Outside view is really fantastic. Those who watch Mountain doctor they know that main actor married there.

great terrace in summer and winter, friendly and fast service, family run, sometimes a little too busy with clebrities, but if one can avoid it, it´s really nice. Good in summer to rest after a mountain walk, great in winter to breakl a ski day

This place is quite big and can be a bit crowded. The food ranges from good (cordon bleu) to below the comparators (Kaiserschmarren). The prices are high for what is offered. On the plus site is the location and the huge playground for the kids.

I wasn't looking for vegan options I'm afraid, so they may be able to help. But I have to tell you that the Austria in general is not a good destination for vegans. Or even vegetarians. May I suggest Turkey?
