salzburg
salzburg Salzburg is one of the smaller Austrian provinces but it is one of the most important for the tourism industry. Hundreds and thousands of visitors from all over the world visit the “Small Paradise” of Salzburg throughout the year. Unspoilt countryside with unique natural attractions such as the Hohe Tauern National Park, the beauty of the “Baroque Jewel” of the old town centre of Salzburg and in the surrounding communities offer an enchanting variety. Successful efforts are being made in Salzburg to preserve nature as the basis for an existence. Salzburg as a holiday destination is equally popular in winter and summer.

Salzburg can be regarded as the oldest and most important cultural and spiritual centre in present-day Austria. Although it had already been elevated to the rank of archdiocese in 798 and from the late Middle Ages onwards had formed a spiritual principality in the Holy Roman Empire, Salzburg is one of Austria’s youngest Länder. The development of the region and its ultimate separation from Bavaria, its mother country, was agreed in the fourteenth century but it was not until 1816 that Salzburg was incorporated into Austria. Of Austria’s present-day Länder or provinces, Salzburg is the only one to have been ruled as an independent state by a prince-archbishop and it is the only one of the many spiritual principalities of the Holy Roman Empire still to exist as an independent province.

    mozartkugeln Salzburger Mozartkugeln

    The Echte Salzburger Mozartkugeln from Mirabell in the unmistakable red-golden packaging are a favorite confection and a symbol for enjoyment. They are a highly appreciated gift, a typical Austrian souvenir and an internationally recognized synonym for Austria.

    The Echte Salzburger Mozartkugeln have a core made of marzipan, surrounded by a layer of dark and a layer of light nougat crème, coated in the finest chocolate.

    It was 1890 when the master pastry chef Paul Fürst from Salzburg invented the Mozartkugel. He formed a ball out of marzipan, rolled a hazelnut nougat crème layer evenly around the marzipan core by hand, and speared the ball onto a wooden pick. He then dipped the hardened ball into dark chocolate and kept turning it until the marzipan-nougat-ball was evenly covered with a layer of dark chocolate. Today, Mozartkugeln in the Konditorei Fürst in Salzburg are still made this way. The complex procedure of making them by hand was not suitable - with all due respect to tradition - to keep pace with the growing number of requests. Therefore, the traditional Salzburger Mirabell Company made its original manual production process more industrialized. However, for the manufacturing of this specialty, there are still 14 steps and each Echte Salzburger Mozartkugel requires 2 1/2 hours of work time. Today, the Echte Salzburger Mozartkugeln are exported to approximately 50 countries and function as the "sweet" ambassador of Austria.

    Stiegl Beer

    stiegl beer The new Stiegl-Spezial beer is brewed true to a hundred-year-old original recipe, now rediscovered and brewed to an original gravity of 12.5°.

    The owner of the Stiegl brewery, Dr. Heinrich Dieter Kiener, added Even back then the Spezial was my great uncle Heinrich Kiener I’s favourite beer, the man who laid the foundations for our latter-day success.

    This beer has a somewhat stronger flavour than the immensely popular Stiegl-Goldbräu; it is filled in nostalgic 50cl bottles with the traditional swing stopper, and is a full flavoured and well balanced beer.
