SMALL AND ICONIC: MANNER WAFERS

Unbelievable, but true: Two packs of Manner Wafers are eaten worldwide every second. This equates to more than 172,800 packs every day and more than 63 million pieces every year! But what makes the crispy wafers, layered with fine chocolate cream, so irresistible? It is the delicate flavour and the piece of history that you get with every bite. After all, Josef Manner I actually developed the recipe and basic shape of the Manner Original Neapolitan Wafers in 1898, which has remained absolutely unchanged since then. The Austrian ‘Original’ is also available at Vienna Airport, directly in the Manner shop.
 

THE SACHERTORTE TRAVELS THE WORLD

This torte, which has now become one of the most popular gifts from Austria, originated around 180 years ago out necessity for apprentice baker Franz Sacher, who had to represent his master for an order from the imperial court and thereby invented the first Sachertorte. Years later, his son Eduard completed the recipe of the famous Sachertorte during his apprenticeship at the Imperial court confectionery Demel. He gave the torte its characteristic shape, as it is known today and enjoyed around the world. The Sachertorte – the delicious chocolate torte with a thin layer of apricot jam under a chocolate glaze – will effortlessly survive any long distance flight in the handy wooden box. Visit iconic confectionery Demel at Vienna Airport and enjoy a piece there or take a whole torte with you as a sweet reminder.

GOLDEN ART: GUSTAV KLIMT JEWELLERY BY FREYWILLE

Gustav Klimt and the Viennese jewellery label FreyWille are united in fire. With its homage, the long-standing Austrian company FreyWille dedicates a limited edition to one of the most famous Austrian painters and most important representatives of Art Nouveau. In this respect, the jewellery designers were inspired by one of his most famous works - the Palais Stoclet mosaic in Brussels. The special edition of necklaces, rings, bracelets and cufflinks, which FreyWille created from gold and fire enamel in a complex process, also adorns the shop windows of the FreyWille shop at Vienna Airport and is a particularly elegant last-minute gift for high-flyers.
