In a passageway between Getreidegasse and Grünmarkt, very close to the house in which Mozart was born, is one of the most enchanting and indeed one of the smallest confectioners in the town. The interior with a gothic vault is reminiscent of a doll’s house against a fitting background of classical music, mostly the late baroque creations of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
The delicacies produced here can be sampled at a few tables in the shop, accompanied by a cup of one of the many coffees available. Alternatively, customers can have them packed to take home. In 1983 a master confectioner, Erich Winkler, together with his wife Helene, took over the confectionery business founded by Karl Schatz in 1850, and soon won over the hearts of customers everywhere with his sweet and heavenly creations.
Such as the fluffy raspberry soufflé, the soft and succulent chocolate and poppy seed cake and his fruity cherry rolls, mini puff pastries and Schatz’s own chocolate and marzipan Mozartkugeln chocolates.
SPECIALITIES: Papageno cakes, Traunkirchner cakes, raspberry soufflés, cherry rolls, Schatz vanilla slices, Rigo-Jancsi cake, apple, cheese curd and cherry strudel, a fine selection of Danish pastries
