Café Fürst

Café Fürst

Since 1884

At the Paris exhibition in 1905, a whole 15 years after he invented the Salzburg Mozartkugel, the confectioner Paul Fürst won the gold medal in appreciation of his invention. The name of his nougat-pistachio temptation was chosen to honour a ‘son of Salzburg’ who was not quite as popular as he is today.

In the 21st century, Martin Fürst, Paul’s great grandson, is still producing the sweet and delicious hand-made ‘Original Salzburg Mozartkugels’ using the same complex procedures and the same recipe, and also offers a large range of chocolates and truffle specialities, delicious sweet pastries and classic coffee creations.

The main shop at the top of Brodgasse on Alter Markt square has a garden for guests and was opened in 1884. There is another coffee house at no. 5 Mirabellplatz, and it is also possible to purchase these chocolates and confectionery at no. 47 Getreidegasse, and in the Ritzerbogen / Sigmund-Haffner-Gasse passageway.

SPECIALITIES: Traditional Austrian coffee culture, traditional Austrian cakes and tarts, such as the Sachertorte chocolate cake, Dobos cake, Esterhazy cake
