NAGY Gingerbread & Candle Manufacturer
Situated in the Schallmoos part of Salzburg, Lebkuchen- & Kerzenmanufaktur Nagy been around since 1879. Purely by hand for the most part, they manufacture candles for a variety of special occasions and according to their customers’ individual wishes. In addition, this family business is famous for its delicious honey gingerbread.
Ludwig Nagy was born in Hungary. In 1879 he opened a gingerbread and candle shop in the Linzer Gasse (now situated in Sterneckstrasse 22), which remains under family ownership to this day. The business has continued to expand into the whole of Austria, neighbouring parts of Bavaria and northern Italy.
As has always been the case, the majority of the products are made purely by hand. In fact, drawing and pouring candles, and dipping them into a whole range of colours, is very work-intensive – as is the subsequent decoration with a range of wax motifs or the painting of the wax reliefs. Specialities include the Salzburg wax ‘Jesukinderl’, hand-painted wax models and candles designed according to old motifs, as well as individually lettered candles for Christenings and weddings – and of course all kinds of special requests are fulfilled.
The temptation is great to try out some or all of the 40 heavenly kinds of honey gingerbread, all produced according to old recipes.
