The food here is mainly Austrian and although beautifully delicious, it tends to consist of dumplings and pastries, which aren't particularly good for the waistline, however locally or internationally, on a grand scale or merely a small dinner - it’s all available.
The shops here are mainly sports orientated; however there are several souvenir, craft and the odd fashion boutiques. If you fancy serious retail therapy and a day away from the slopes, take the 45 minute drive into Salzburg as this is a must!.
