Probably the highest Street Food Festival in the world

back to magazine overview

Last weekend, the highest Street Food Festival in Zürs took place for the first time. At an altitude of 1,700 metres above sea level, innovative chefs in various food trucks invited guests to enjoy outstanding delicacies. The offer ranged from wild stuffed burgers with venison, to Stinky Pig Fries and a 20 hour cooked pulled pork - there was something for every taste. Nevertheless, the Street Food Festival's varied range of dishes also invited guests to taste rather atypical, extravagant creations.

Especially for the chefs, this special kind of street food festival was a challenge. In addition to the organisational effort required to cope with this, despite the somewhat different taste sensation and divergent cooking times at 1,700 metres above sea level, they prepared dishes au point and with excellent taste. The heavy snowfalls did not prevent many visitors from feasting on the "Gustostückerl" during a short ski break or after skiing.

Musically, the Street Food Festival was accompanied by DJ Rino, a House, Club Sounds and "Hip-House" Master, who provided the right atmosphere. Especially in the past few years, Street Food Festivals have become very popular all over the world and because of their popularity they are already part of various event calendars. Nevertheless, no street food festival that I've already attended can match the unique location in the midst of a snowy and mountainous landscape and the very special atmosphere, far above the usual surroundings.
