Stiftskeller St. Peter is a restaurant within the monastery walls of St. Peter’s Archabbey, Salzburg, Austria. It is claimed to be the oldest inn in Central Europe because of a supposed documentary mention of it by the scholar Alcuin in 803 AD. Based on this and other claims, the Stiftskeller St. Peter is probably the oldest restaurant in the world, and undoubtedly the oldest in Europe. Both Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Christopher Columbus are said to have been served at the restaurant.
