Grand Guglhupf special edition with Klimts “Judith“
5 March 2020
On the occasion of the 150 years jubilee, Grand Hotel Wien presents a special edition of the Grand Guglhupf. In cooperation with the Austrian museum Belvedere, a new design was created for the box featuring Gustav Klimt´s “Judith”.
The Grand Hotel Wien celebrates its 150th birthday in 2020. The topic „fin de siècle“ is recurrent this year in many activities of the luxury hotel, so it was obvious to use a picture from this time for the new box.
In cooperation with the Austrian Museum Belvedere Gustav Klimts painting “Judith“ from 1901 was selected. It is, too, about „the art of seduction“, but in a different way than enjoying a delicious piece of moist Guglhupf.
Guglhupf – A Viennese tradition
Guglhupf is one of Austria's most traditional and best liked pastries. The Viennese enjoy the sweet delicacy for breakfast, as a dessert or as part of a coffee or tea break during the day. The cake in its distinct round shape has been known for quite some time. Already the Romans used to bake cakes in forms similar to those used for today's Guglhupf.
At the Grand Hotel Wien Guglhupf is being baked according to a secret recipe that gives it a delicious moist and fresh taste. For the Grand Guglhupf, no artificial additives or flavors and only the best ingredients are being used. And this can be tasted!
Limited Edition ‘Judith´
For a short period of time, the Grand Hotel Wien Guglhupf is now available in combination with "Judith", the famous painting of the Austrian artist Gustav Klimt. In cooperation with the Austrian Gallery Belvedere a special Box has been created for the delicious cake. This way the Grand Guglhupf can still give joy long after it was enjoyed to the last crumb.
The Grand Guglhupf can be purchased at the Grand Hotel Wien or be ordered at Austrian Supermarket. The box including a Guglhupf of 800 grams costs € 25,-.
