An unusual setting for a great restaurant, why eye candy? when you enter the court yard you already are walking into a huge art installation, the restaurant is wonderfully decorated in art and memorabilia, it is well worth a visit, the food is delicious and the setting is awesome

You can't miss Alte Burg as you drive through the charming place Gmund. There is a restaurant there. Climbed up the tower which gave great views. Spooky atmospheric Castle. Love the ambience.

After our visit to the restaurant there we explored the rest of the "Alte Burg" but were not impressed. It was claimed that the "Alte Burg was used frequently for theater events, but our impression was one of gloom, dust, overdue maintenance and dilapidated furniture strewn around.
