Die Weisse is a big, beautiful place with many different rooms and a large outdoor area. It's new but the decor is mostly traditional with lots of wood, at least one kachelofen (ceramic heater) that I saw, and horns and paintings hung on the walls as well as other bric-a-brac.

There's not a great choice for beer with them generally offering their standard weiss von fass and whatever's seasonal (bock, zummer, Märzen, jubilator, etc.), as well as their dunkles in bottles. They also pour Trumer Pils. On the other hand, given the quality of the beers there are worse choices.

The food is good and the service is good, noting that there can be hang-ups because it is such a large, busy place.

Overall there's not much more in Salzburg, and particularly in the area, although S'Klone Bräuhaus is right nearby.

A day trip to Salzburg wouldn't be complete without....beer? Sure, the Mozart house and Sound of Music tour are two great things in the city, but beer makes these sights far more interesting ;-) Time for lunchy, and time for beer. The restaurant is very large and has multiple rooms. There's a bar which can seat about 8 people not far from the enterance. A little dark inside with some of the nautral lighting making its way through the windows. I arrived just after 11am, when the place was very empty, leaving an hour later saw a place that was closer to half-full.

One pleasant surprise of the house was the selection of beer. Initially when you see the four taps, you think it's a normal selection, then learn there are seven additional beers from the bottle. Styles include a marzen, christmasbock, dark weisse, Original 1901, and a "sparkling beer" called Frizzz which cost over €20. Luckily, the beer and food is affordable, with 300 ml pours from the tap at €3, and lunch combination are available too (weisswurst with pretzel and a beer, why not?). The food part was good, the beer part is mediocre, though they do well offering an array of glassware for their beer.

If you're looking for something new to try and aren't from Salzburg, Die Weisse may be worth a try. At least you have a lot of beer options.

Walk straight down the narrow Linzergasse, till it becomes the main road Schallmooser Haupstrasse till you see Virgilgasse on the left, walk down that short street and you will see Die Wiesse on the end corner. Would take 15 mins from the river, Bus No 4 also runs along Schallmooser Haupstrasse. Large building with several rooms, and extension and beer garden outside. Basic decor with large tables for 4-8 and lively atmosphere. Seems popular with the younger folk. Service is good, though their own Wheat Beer naturally takes pride of place, and very good it is too. Does not open Saturday or Sundays, and go early to ensure a table. Food very good value and large portions. If you enjoy Wheat beers, then this is an essential visit with in Salzburg.

Update at September 2007

This is still a great place for good wheat beers, though seems to always be VERY busy in the evenings, and I think you would need to reserve a table for a meal! Always a lively atmosphere, wide ranging clientelle and good value food. Takes about 15-20 minutes to walk from the old town across the main bridge and along Linzergasse / Schallmooser Hauspstrasse until you reach Virgilstrasse and then turn left. Electric bus No 4 will take you along Schallmooser, get off at the 2nd stop and walk back.

Visited Die Weisse on 27.11.06 for beer and lunch. The place was very quiet (Monday). It is a large establishment with high ceilings with a modern feel to it. A nice collection of enamel beer signs hang above the area where we sat. The tables are set well apart adding to the airy roomy feel. I had a couple of their nice house brews, but did not take any notes, preferring to relax in the place. The food was okay without being brilliant. Clean toilets are located in the very modern basement part. The Braustuberl part of Die Weisse was closed, as was another part of the main building (roped off). I would like to visit the place when it is busier.

A friend and I visited this place on a day trip to Salzburg. It is a great stop for really good food and a fun atmosphere. The beer was good but nothing special. Its got a solid selection of what you would expect and then a few fun beers that they brew. My friend got the Wienerschnitzel and I had the Ripperl (ribs) and we both agreed the food was awesome. A bonus is its not to far from the train station. If your in town I would recommend a visit.
