7 Typical Austrian Foods You Must Try in Innsbruck

Austrian cuisine is one of my favourites. Austria is the home of my favourite cake - Sacher cake and one of my favourite foods - Spätzle. I was lucky enough to live in Innsbruck for a while and I have visited it over 15 times in the last decade. I love Innsbruck (it is actually my favourite city) and I love Austrian food so I have made a list of my favourite Tyrolean (T) and Austrian (A) foods and where to try them.
