1st thing to do in Salzburg: Experience the Magic of Cafe Mozart in Salzburg: A Delicious Treat for the Senses

You Can’t Visit Salzburg Without Honouring Mozart

Mozart is the city’s most famous son, born and bred in Salzburg and forever a part of its legacy. Born in Getreidegasse 9 (in 1756) “Mozart Geburtshaus”, today fans flock for a picture outside the building’s brightly painted yellow façade, which now incorporates a permanent exhibition about his life and career. Coming to the city of Salzburg, it is impossible not to mention Mozartkugel.

You can indulge in Mozartkugel chocolate, whose red and yellow wrapper marks it out as the Salzburger Mozartkugel. There’s a lot of pride here over the Mozartkugel which you can buy from anywhere in Austria. Each Genuine Salzburger Mozartkugel is an incomparable taste experience consisting of a marzipan center, surrounded by layers of dark and light praline cream, coated in the finest rich dark chocolate.

The Mirabell Mozartkugel is unique because it is still produced in the spirit of the original recipe in Salzburg, the city where Mozart was born. It is a synonym for Austrian culture and tradition all around the world and a popular souvenir for anyone who wants to take a little piece of Austria back home or around the world. A box of Echte Salzburger Mozartkugeln made by Mirabell contains everything that you love about Austria: history, music, and tradition. You can easily recognize the Echte Salzburger Mozartkugel, not only by their perfectly round shape but also by their classic red and gold octagonal packaging.

Since Mirabell offers the most typical Austrian chocolate pleasure, it is a popular souvenir for anyone who wants to take a little piece of Austria back home. 


A few blocks away from the “Mozart Geburstaghaus” is a CAFÉ MOZART which is well known for its good coffee and the especially fluffy Salzburger Nockerl, which is the special Salzburg dessert, representing the three mountains around Salzburg: Mönchsberg, Kapuzinerberg, and Rainberg. 


Café Mozart was given its name in 1922, however, the history of the coffee house goes back much further. Until the 1930s, the café was a popular meeting place for writers and musicians and later became home to the legendary Mozart Chess Club. From the 1970s onwards, Mozart was once again a live performance venue for literature and cabaret with celebrity guests. After an inglorious hiatus as a clothing shop, the old-school coffee house culture at Mozart was revived in 2006.

The traditional Café Mozart is located in the middle of Salzburg’s most famous Shopping street, the Getreidegasse. The coffee house on the bel étage offers an extensive menu with a large breakfast selection, various coffee specialties, Austrian desserts, and savory dishes of the day.

Café Mozart in the Getreidegasse is considered one of the oldest cafés in the city. Always appreciated by artists as a place for literary performances, the traditional premise still hosts “Literature at Café Mozart” several times a year.

Café Mozart offers a diverse menu every day by confectioners prepare homemade and fresh delicacies, whether seasonal fruit cakes, several pies, and especially popular Mozartpie. Comfortably take a seat and enjoy yourself in a relaxed setting with dark wood paneling, comfy booths & a full bar.

Café Mozart is my favourite cafe shop from the food, the interior design, and the concept. It is a nice place to meet and chat with friends, as well as a stopover after the time sightseeing. The atmosphere inside doesn’t seem grandeur or lavish at all instead of it is close to warmth and cozy. The service was good and only wait around 10 minutes for a drink. The employees were very nice, friendly and fast. 

If you do not know much about the typical traditional cakes here… no worries. Again they display the cakes in the fridge display with the name below so at least you get the idea. I ordered “Mozart Symphonie Becher”. It was created by a delicious mix of ice-cream chocolate, nougat & pistachio with Mozart liqueur, pistachio, chocolate chips, and whipped cream. The amount of sweetness is perfect, and it was recommended to try.


Moreover I ordered the most famous one it is called “Salzburg Nockerl” is a soufflé made with egg yolk (you can taste the egg), sugar, flour, and vanilla. It is shaped like a mountain, and it symbolized the mountains represent for three mountains: Mönchsberg, Kapuzinerberg, and Rainberg. The dish is very fluffy. When I try my first bite of Salzburg Nockerl, it feels like you’re eating a fluffy omelet because of the egg taste. This portion is definitely for two people. The dessert I recommend you try it because it’s delicious and it’s the typical Salzburg dish.
