The debonair and urbane Travelling Gourmet TM in Salzburg, Austria…

MAKES a beeline for Red Bull’s Hangar 7 at Salzburg Airport. To get here from the Hotel Salzburg in Salzburg where I stayed was quite challenging. It was a warm and sunny day when I took Bus no. 2 from opposite the Mirabell Schloss. After some 30 minutes I alighted at the bus stop. It was a long walk to Hangar 7!!

Salzburg based architect Volkmar Burgstaller used 1,200 tonnes of steel and 380 tonnes of special glass to create Hangar-7 at Salzburg airport. Hangar 7 opened on August 22, 2003.

Inside Hangar-7, it is the unique glass dome which inevitably draws your gaze is drawn upwards to the unique glass dome. The dome is made with 1,754 glass panes – no two of which have the same dimensions. The clear glass creates a different atmosphere in Hangar-7 depending on the weather and the time of day. On display are legendary airplanes, helicopters, Formula 1 cars and motorcycles.

For food and drink, there is the Carpe Diem Cafe, (translates as “seize the day” from Latin), Mayday Bar and Three Sixty Bar. The Outdoor Lounge for grilled meats is open in summer.

Haute cuisine is in Ikarus restaurant. Here, the concept is a different guest chef every month! The international guest chefs are known for their gourmet cuisine.
