Concierge.com's insider take:
Claiming to be Europe's oldest restaurant (established in the year 800), this local landmark—part of a sprawling Benedictine abbey in the middle of the Altstadt—is proof that playing tourist sometimes pays off. You might want to skip the Mozart dinner concerts, which take dinner theater to a new level but sometimes haul in entire tour groups (local signature dishes are served in a candlelit second-floor Baroque hall while costumed singers run through their Mozart paces). Nab a table downstairs in one of the surprisingly quiet, wood-paneled dining rooms and tuck into the roasted saddle of suckling pig with savoy cabbage, followed by a perfect plum tart, you may wind up being seduced by the place, in spite of yourself.
Open daily 11 am to 10:45 pm.
