I'm not sure that I'd serve both red cabbage AND sauerkraut. Better to choose one or the other. With your veal dish I'd probably go with the red cabbage. If you'd like a green vegetable to go with your dish, green beans tossed with some sauteed onion & crisp bacon bits would also go nicely.

Thin sliced cucumbers, with a vinagrette that is on the tart side, and lots of dill or other fresh herbs.

Fried potatoes or potato pancakes if you're looking for a starch and don't want to do the spaetzil, which I agree would be #1. I don't know about veal holstein, is it a saucey dish? If so definitely the spaetzil. If it is a dryer dish, I'd go with the fried potato side, which doesn't need a sauce.

Pretty comical when people suggest accompaniments to a dish with which they are obviously unfamiliar. Pomfrits, warm potato salad, or a green bean salad are pretty much the standard accompaniment.

No one said fried potatos did they? Oh I see someone did. They would go well anyway.

What else would accompany an elaborate and specifically garnished schnitzle that we missed oh master of the German cuisine?
