Welcome at Josef Holzermayr
Chocolate-Specialities since 1865.
We can thank the former supplier to the Imperial-Royal Court Josef Holzermayr for the sophisticated taste of the genuine "Salzburger Mozartkugel". To celebrate the muscial genius of the city of Salzburg, Josef Holzermayr started offering hand-rolled Mozartkugeln, wrapped in Holzermayr silver foil, in 1980.
Since 1913, the genuine "Salzburger Mozartkugel" has also been available in the original shop of the Confiserie Josef Holzermayr on Salzburgs Alter Markt 7. The core of this small delicacy consists of the finest nougat, surrounded by pistachio marzipan and the best bitter chocolate. Today, the world-famous Mozartkugeln are shipped all over the world.
When one enters the shop at the Alte Markt in Salzburgs inner city, it's as if one is instantly transported back to a long-lost time. Chocolates and sweets of all kinds are displayed on nostalgic-seeming wooden shelves. French caramel, sweet-sour drops and pastel-coloured silk sweets are lined up in large glass drawer containers on old-fashioned sweet stands.
The Holzermayr is an Eldorado for chocolate lovers. The selection on offer ranges from filled chocolate with caramelised pumpkingseeds to raisins pickled in grappa. The company represents the fourth generation of the family and anybody who enters the chocolate and confiserie shop knows right away that the work here is infused with passion. Pralines and chocolates always come freshly produced.
