Our blog shall offer you an extended view into the world of Riding Dinner and treats various topics around Vienna, cuisine, horse-drawn carriages, animal welfare.
My god, how time flies… after almost exactly one year of forced break, we are finally back in Salzburg with our culinary fiaker. And better than ever! Our partner restaurants have stayed the same, our range has expanded – so we can’t wait to tell you what has changed and what that means for you. But first, let’s answer the question that’s probably already burning your tongue:
To answer the question, we have to go back a little… As you may know, the Riding Dinner in Salzburg works basically exactly like in Vienna. Together with our fiaker partner in Salzburg (the Winter family) we drive through the old town with our modified culinary fiaker and make various stops at our partner restaurants.
Summer 2017: So, when we were planning the realization in Salzburg, we were looking for three great partner restaurants. Finally, with the Hotel Sacher Salzburg, the Goldener Hirsch and the Café Tomaselli, we were able to win three typical Salzburg businesses for our concept. In addition to good and uncomplicated cooperation, loyalty is particularly important to us in our partnerships.
Summer 2018: So, last year our partners at the Goldener Hirsch had to temporarily close their business. Don’t worry – the closure was due to a general renovation of the entire hotel, as well as their restaurants. Therefore, we decided to stop our service in Salzburg for this period. Now of course at this point, you could say: “Well it’s your own fault, why didn’t you search for another business so you could continue to serve the 3-course-meal in the carriage?” Quite simply, because we are just as loyal to our partners as we expect them to be. Perhaps this makes little economic sense, but long and strong partnerships are more important to us than short-term success…
So, we are all the more pleased that the hotel Goldener Hirsch has recently shone in new splendor and that we are able to get started again with our culinary fiaker. In the last 12 months, many things changed at us also. The development is simply enormous and in Vienna, we were able to achieve all our goals to date. At the same time, we used the break in Salzburg to implement some new ideas and plans.
The new things short:
• website design: The complete Salzburg website shines in new splendour. Much clearer, friendlier and above all, more visual.
• revised offers: In addition to our “Culinary Sightseeing” experience, there are now also other Premium and Economy offers in Salzburg – so there is something suitable for every taste and budget.
• Pure Salzburg: In the future, you will also get to see and hear much more of our trips in Salzburg.
But before we list all the changes and innovations here, we recommend that you simply take a look at the new website: just click here!
We hope that after reading this little article, you’d really like to enjoy a Riding Dinner in Salzburg and that we were able to give you a very personal insight.
See you soon in Salzburg!
