Sweet temptations

World-famous delicacies

Many culinary pathways lead through SalzburgerLand, and the suitable delicacy is on hand for any taste. Salzburg’s typical coffeehouses, whether from the era of the Austrian monarchy or very modern with pastry specialities for pleasure seekers, are waiting for anyone with a sweet tooth. Salzburg’s three local mountains are served on a plate? That can only be the sweet dumplings known as Salzburger Nockerl! The sweet beaten egg white soufflé was among the most favourite desserts of rulers during the era of prince-archbishops. And to this day it is simply part of any crowning menu.

Chocolates from SalzburgerLand

The famous chocolate ball known as the Salzburger Mozartkugel is world-famous and literally on everyone’s lips! The original from Café-Konditorei Fürst has been copied often and yet remains unrivalled. An exquisite selection of confectionery shops and chocolate shops is dedicated to the high art of patisserie. Many go into raptures while enjoying a cup of good coffee and a slice of homemade torte. And the tender chocolate variations from the chocolate shops conjure up tenderly melting dreams of chocolate, nougat and truffle.

The art of sweet temptation

Such is also the case with a formerly small family enterprise from Lofer in the Pinzgau region’s picturesque Saalach River Valley: Hubert and Christine Berger have transformed their passion for chocolate into a profession, and since that time they have been pampering their visitors with the finest chocolate creations. At their chocolate shops in Lofer and Salzburg you will be astonished by more than 50 different chocolates and about seventy praline concepts. And thanks to their indefatigable creativity, new varieties are constantly being added – one more delicious than the other! Absolute unwillingness to compromise is simply part of their craftsmanship for the Berger family. They find the ingredients for their creations directly in the region: cream, farmhouse fruit, hay-milk and alpine herbs or even fine distilled spirits for high-proof fillings. Are you in the mood for a rowanberry truffle?

Mountain Legends and Alpine Summer

Besides popular chocolate classics such as whole milk, nut and bittersweet, it is above all the creative variety of chocolate which makes a visit to Confiserie Berger particularly worthwhile. These culinary highlights also include the chocolate series “Mountain Legends” and “Alpine Summer”: filled with healthy mountain herbs of TEH (Traditional European Healing) or “high-spirited” pine schnapps, they are an unforgettable pleasure.

Passion for craftsmanship

Anyone who enters this culinary world immediately perceives the sensuality, passion and love which are behind this craftsmanship. Even today the ingredients are processed by hand and stirred in age-old copper kettles. Then the tender delicacies are also packed by hand and lovingly enhanced with lots of patience and the delight in creating delicious products.

Sweet mementos

A visit to Confiserie Berger is an unforgettable experience: the fragrance of melted chocolate, roasted nuts and fine hints of caramel is in the air. The wonderful chocolate specialities in their fancy packages each resemble a small work of art. There is no way around tasting the chocolates due to the delectable selection. And anyone who would like to retain the memory for as long as possible will take a sweet piece of SalzburgerLand home with them.
