If you haven't been to Zauner, you've missed a true highlight of Bad Ischl. There are two locations, one on the Esplanade overlooking the River Traun (open only in summer) and the other a few blocks away on Pfarrgasse. The desserts—particularly the house creation, Zaunerstollen, a chocolate-covered confection of sugar, hazelnuts, and nougat—have made this one of Austria's best-known pastry shops. Emperor Franz Josef used to visit every day for a Guglhupf, a
lemon sponge cake.
