Flachau has a wide variety of places to eat and drink. There are many restaurants and bars catering for all budgets and all tastes.

For families, you will find that the children of all ages are really welcome, and so many of the restaurants have children’s play areas. Plus there’s always reduced priced children’s menus available.

There are approx 20 restaurants to choose from around the village (not including another 20+ in the mountains). The selection ranges from traditional Austrian fayre (we can recommend the Jagdhof on Flachauer Strasse; it’s great for the children with its own play areas), pizzerias (try the Weinstadl, also on Flachauer Strasse), or try the Hoagast in the village centre for a more formal evening out ( an amazing menu of Thai, Japanese, Korean, with a mix of Austrian and European dishes, plus a great choice of fish and vegetarian dishes).

Alternatively head into the village centre for a coffee and a piece of Apple Strudel, there’s a good choice of roadside cafeterias where you can sit in the sun outside and people watch.

Up on the slopes there’s an equally large choice of >20 mountain restaurants. The standard is so high in terms of choice and quality of fresh food, value for money, friendly atmosphere and internal decor; the restaurants are all maintained and decorated to unbelievably high standards (France: Take Note!). Once you put your foot inside, you will never want to head out again!

Many of the mountain restaurants do remain open in the summer season as well as the winter season; hence why much of the ski lift system remains open as well.

There is also a great range of bars, both on and off the slopes, during the winter season, there’s great party atmosphere everywhere, in which Austria somehow excels at! You’ll ski past many places with jingling bells and foot stomping music from approx 3.30pm!

Around the village there is Ema’s Pub in the centre, which attracts the sports fans with live screening of the English and German football matches. Nearby is the Bar Hoo Ruck for some lively après ski and later on lots of loud music! If you want to sample some of Austria’s beers and wines in a relaxed atmosphere, try the large selection in the Alten Neuwirt.

If you want to sample some real traditional Austrian atmosphere with live music head to the ‘MusiStadl’ (less than a 5 minute walk from the apartment); there is a party atmosphere every evening, with good food and plenty of drink!

If you still have the legs and appetite for a really late night out, then head to the ‘Fire and Ice’ night club in the village centre. You can drink and dance until the early hours.
