Bladl, the delicious Pinzgau speciality

If there were ever a characteristic Pinzgau meal, then it is surely the “Bladl” – dumplings made from rye flour that are fried and served with a potato and bacon filling, with sauerkraut or as a sweet dish with lingonberries (known locally as “Granggn”). There are still a number of traditional Pinzgau inns in which you can sample this speciality.
