Skiing wouldn't be skiing without stopping off for lunch at a traditional mountain hut.

There are countless wooden chalets next to the pistes in the Hochkönig resort, all of which serve delicious homemade food. Indeed, the resort is known across Austria as one of the leading locations for vegan food. Almost all huts have vegan and vegetarian options on the menu.

The hardest decision is where to go first! A trendy hut with chilled out lounge music? A traditional wooden chalet? Or how about a spot out on the terrace sipping a cool drink as the sun goes down?
