Stories from Bad Kleinkirchheim
Bad Kleinkirchheimes treasure, "the Kaiser Mountain Bonbon"
Author: Markus Patscheider
According to an old legend, a mysterious treasure is hidden high above Bad Kleinkirchheim on Kaiser Mountain. The pastry shop ‘Hutter’ took it upon itself more than a decade ago to bring this treasure down to the valley, to pour it in chocolate and to share it with their guests. A true creation of bitter chocolate, champagne marzipan and dark- truffle paste was born. Its name: ‘Kaiser Mountain Bonbon’.
These bonbons have long since become a part of our cultural heritage and are known far beyond the borders of Bad Kleinkirchheim. But there’s more than just the Kaiser Mountain Bonbon waiting for visitors at the pastry shop Hutter - you can also get a piece of ‘Franz Klammer Cake’ (a raspberry-nut cake which, by the way, is also Franz Klammer’s favorite cake) and a ‘Half-Meter of Love’ (a 50 cm long tube filled with sweets). They even have gluten-free products and bakery goods for diabetics.
Michaela Hutter, who is the 2nd generation running the business, told me that their recipe for success has never changed over the last 42 years. First class quality, friendly and helpful staff and the courage and interest to create the ‘new’ for their customers – these are still the most important factors for satisfied customers.
Location: Café Hutter is to the west of the Kathrein Thermal Baths
