About us

Tradition not only obligates us to the best taste and the most exquisite quality but also to perfection. Only when gastronomy, ambiance, and service harmonize do we speak of the highest level.

Enjoyment can be so simple

The success story of Gerstner began with a bakery in Vienna. With the awarding of the title of K. u. K. Hofzuckerbäcker and the first Austrian catering at the World Exhibition in 1873, Gerstner became an important purveyor to the court.

For over 175 years, Gerstner has delighted connoisseurs and enthusiasts from Vienna and around the world. Take a seat in one of our café-restaurants, indulge in treats from our bakery, or enjoy our catering at events in the most traditional houses.
