Schokolade König: From Buttons to Chocolate


The "Button King" sold buttons in this location since 1844. It was only about ten years ago that buttons gave way to artisanal chocolates and other sweet delicacies. The button collections on the top shelves are reminders of the original business housed in this magnificent old Viennese shop.

Schokolade König
Two minutes from St. Stephan's Cathedral:
Take Goldschmiedgasse towards St. Peter's to
Freisingergasse 1

The King was in his chocolate house
Counting out his buttons
The Queen was in the parlor
Drinking hot chocolate with honey.
