ABOUT ‘The Most Beautiful Restaurants & Bars 2023’.

For the fifth time, Callwey publishers and their partners announced the winners of the major interior design and gastronomy award for ‘The Most Beautiful Restaurants & Bars 2023’ in Austria, Germany and Switzerland.

The background… Bar and restaurant guides rarely focus on interior design, or take a look at lighting, furniture and surfaces – but they’re what determines the atmosphere of a place. We like to sink into comfortable chairs, while well-chosen lighting places excellent cuisine in the best possible light, and all kinds of details contribute to the balance and mood. Interiors reveal the self-image of a culinary establishment long before we take a bite or a sip. The Most Beautiful Restaurants & Bars award was established to rectify the situation.
The jury selected a total of 50 outstanding interior design concepts in gastronomy operations. These can be seen in this year’s book: ‘The Most Beautiful Restaurants & Bars 2023’.
We are delighted St. Peter’s Stiftskulinarium has been featured in this publication, including detailed facts and figures, exciting background stories, floor plans and references to the products we use.
As part of the awards, the images of our establishment produced by photographer Anja Koppitsch were also honoured with a special photography prize.

‘Between then and now’ is how Anja Koppitsch titles her photographs of St. Peter’s Stiftskulinarium in Salzburg on her Instagram account. It is precisely the sense of ‘being in the midst, and at the heart’ that she captures with her lens – enabling it to be expressed in a photographic image. Her pictures are more than mere images of the oldest documented restaurant in Europe, at the foot of Mönchsberg Hill, between the cathedral and the Festival Hall in Mozart’s home town. The pictures take our minds on a journey. We discover the familiar in what is still unknown, find our position without being on the spot, as if we had been there before.” – Cornelia Hellstern, author of ‘The Most Beautiful Restaurants & Bars’.
The year book is essential reading, serving as a compass that guides us around excellent gastronomy industry concepts, and as a source of inspiration for all pleasure-seekers.
