Linzer Torte

The city's sweetest "ambassador" is known around the world. Konrad Vogel, a baker from Bavaria, first produced this delicacy, which is made from short crust pastry with redcurrant jam, decorated with almonds, in around 1822. The city itself demonstrated excellent taste and shortly afterwards made the Bavarian a freeman.

In numerous patisseries the "Linzer Torte" is still made according to the original recipe and is available for immediate tasting or purchase as a souvenir.
