The Stiftskeller St. Peter in Salzburg
claims to be the oldest restaurant in Europe,
and it has, in fact, been in business over 1,000 years—
mentioned in Charlemagne’s biography
when he ate there in 803!
According to legend,
this was where Mephistopheles met Faust
for that infamous, infernal bargain.
Nothing like a drink
in a room always crowded with such stories!
