Konditorei Kaplan am Kurpark, a gem located in the village of Bad Tatzmannsdorf, in the beautiful burgenland region of Austria. Just under 1.5 hours south of Vienna or 1 hour northeast of the town Graz, Kaplan am Kurpark is a bed and breakfast, confectionary and coffee house, in this relaxing thermal spa village.

A "konditorei" which roughly translates to confectionary in english (or a patisserie in french) is a common shop found in Austria and Germany. A wide assortment of cakes and pastries are available to enjoy alongside your favorite beverage.

Some of most mouth-watering and visually appealing eats I have ever laid my eyes upon will have you scrabbling to pick just one. Christian Kaplan, is the owner and talented "konditor" (the confectionary shop's baker) who masterminds the wide assortment of delectable cakes, chocolates, ice creams and more.

I had the pleasure of a tour through his modern and pristine konditorei. Everything is fresh, made from scratch and with the utmost care and expertise. Don't forget to bring back some gift-wrapped cookies, jams and other goodies after your visit.

A must-see on your next trip in beautiful burgenland before AND after a dip in the thermal spa baths.

Burgenland. Not exactly a hotbed for overseas tourists.
I am impressed. Even myself, hardly eve made it there, other than of course the lake.

Did you enjoy it?

Maki said...

Haha. Too funny. But I agree, hardly a hotbed :)

My in-laws have a home in Burgenland, one hour out of Vienna in the little town of Oberpullendorf. It's a great starting point for travel. It helps that nothing is too far away of a drive in Europe too. Beautiful wine country for sure. I have a post about a winery in that area coming up sometime soon on the blog too.
