Liechtenstein Food and Drink
Liechtensteiner cuisine is greatly influenced by neighbouring Austria and Switzerland, as well as by countries further afield, like France and Germany. Yet it also has a distinct gastronomic culture of its own. For example, the twin culinary pillars of cheese and soup feature far more often in Liechtenstein than elsewhere – at least one will make an appearance at every meal.
Foodie visitors to Liechtenstein have diverse options. They can experience traditional hearty dishes served in a rustic mountain hut, or formal fine dining in a luxury gourmet restaurant.
• Käsknöpfle mit Apfelmus (a doughy pasta-like cheese dish with apple sauce)
•Rheintaler Ribelmais (similar to polenta, but only served in the Rhine Valley)
• Schwartenmagen (pickled meat in jelly)
• Müesli (uncooked rolled oats, fruit and nuts soaked in water or juice)
• Schnitzel (a breaded cutlet of wafer-thin pork meat, served with French fries)
