In 2008, the Paznaun region was awarded the coveted title “Genussregion” (epicurean region) that stands for high product quality and regional ingredients. “Genussregion Österreich” is a registered trademark that honours regional, agricultural products and specialities and highlights specific culinary offers in certain regions.
The Paznaun Valley is particularly known for its excellent bacon, sausage and honey creations. Why not order a savoury “Brettljause” during your next mountain hut break and sample your way through the mouth-watering local treats?
Say cheese! Paznaun Alpine Cheese
The flagship product of the “Genussregion” Paznaun is their award-winning Alpine Cheese. It is made from valley and high pasture milk, skimmed and left to mature for six weeks. Nourished and cherished by the 13 cheese producers of the Genussregion, the Alpine Cheese also owes its savoury aroma to the fresh pasture milk and species-appropriate cattle farming. The six-week maturing process and pea-sized holes make the cheese particularly flavourful and savoury. A must for all cheese lovers!
