Otto Bittner's Sweet Treats

For the sweet tooth.

Although Düsseldorf’s most famous gastronomic delights are meat (such as ‘bratwurst’ sausages) and ‘altbier’ beer, the city also boasts a small, yet delicious, tradition of desserts. If you are looking for a sweet souvenir, don’t miss a visit to the famous Carlplatz market, where you will find the Café Otto Bittner bakery at number 20. This is a real institution in the city. The shop window itself showcases all kinds of dessert, particularly sweets made with marzipan and chocolate. You will see intriguing cakes decorated with the city’s symbols that are not only a work of art, but a delight for your taste buds. The Radschläger is a popular Düsseldorf souvenir, which is both the symbol of the city and delicious sweet treat.
