Signature Dish

Iconic “Käsekrainer”, the most popular Austrian sausage, is the signature dish at Palais Hansen Kempinski, and therefore, its culinary trademark.

Signature Dish

Every Kempinski hotel offers a “signature dish” that gives a culinary idea of its destination. Typically Austrian, the “Käsekrainer” is the perfect choice for Palais Hansen. The tasty, slightly smoked and boiled sausage is considered one of Austria’s most important dishes and was introduced into the market around 1980. It is an adaptation of the Slovenian Krainer sausage and its name comes from the Krainer region.

In close collaboration with the family-run company Höllerschmid from nearby Kamptal, where the accent is put on regional quality and taste, the kitchen team sets a statement concerning regional quality. The cheese in the käsekrainer is an aged Austrian Emmentaler. The slightly smoked and boiled sausage is filled with roasted pork and the casings are all-natural and made from pork without the addition of any colouring products. For more than 40 years, Höllerschmid has been in the sausage business and has been well known in the agricultural region of Kamptal for decades, mainly because they use GMO-free and regional raw materials.

Enjoy the Viennese sausage in the classic way with mustard, horseradish, pepperoni and bread day or night. Do you desire to taste the signature dish?
