Organic bakeries in Vienna

The organic wood-fired oven bakery Gragger & Cie opened its doors in Vienna's 1st district in December 2010. Connected to the sales room made from natural materials such as oiled oak and slate is the heart of the bakery - the wood-fired oven designed by master baker Helmut Gragger himself. This is where you can watch the bakery items being created. At lunchtime, the bread is offered with soup, stew or salad - either to be enjoyed in the aromatic bakery or to take away. Further outlets are located on Siebensterngasse and Vorgartenmarkt.

Right opposite, in the passage between Neustiftgasse and Lerchenfelder Straße, Mr Dieter Smolle bakes exclusively with organic ingredients and wholemeal flour in the Kornradl. All the tasks of the baker's trade can be watched in the tiny bakery:  grinding grain, kneading dough and baking bread. The full-service baker delivers his finished goods by bicycle.

Did you know that Vienna produces more bread grain than Salzburg, Tyrol and Vorarlberg together?

A stroll deeper into the 8th district brings you to the Biofeinkostladen located in Lange Gasse. Here you'll find high-quality bread and bakery items according to Demeter rules and other organic products, such as the organic ham of Viennese ham maker Thum. Demeter is also the trademark for products from organic-dynamic farming practice.

Bread made 100 percent from demeter grain can also be bought at Josef Weghaupt's outlet in Vienna's 1st district. The organic bread specialist swears by traditional craftsmanship: from purely manual processing, to leaving the dough to rest naturally, to letting it stand for one day on the baker's shelf. In addition to the classic varieties, "Joseph - Brot vom Pheinsten" also offers delicacies such as organic rye-honey-lavender bread and healthy Joseph snacks, as well as organic muesli, fresh salads and tea specialties from Saint Charles. A second "Joseph - Brot" - bakery with adjacent patisserie and bistro offering breakfast, lunch and dinner opened its doors in Landstraßer Hauptstraße. And because all good things come in threes, there is a third "Joseph Brot – Bäckerei und Patisserie" in Vienna-Döbling, where customers can be pampered with delicious organic bakery items, cakes and more.

Further pleasurable impressions can best be had on a stroll across Naschmarkt. This is also where one of the two outlets of wholegrain bakery Waldherr is situated, which attracts with organic products, wholegrain treats and special allergy-friendly bread. Products for allergy sufferers, as well as exclusively hand-made bakery items and delicious hand-crafted organic chocolate are offered by organic full-service bakery Gradwohl on Naschmarkt and in eight other outlets across Vienna.
