Hofburg Chocolate Box
Demel's proximity to the Hofburg, the imperial palace across the square, has always played an important role in its success. The emperor and empress regularly had sweets delivered to them in the palace and lords and ladies would visit the Demel cafe for court-related gossip.
This illustration of the Hofburg was drawn by József Divéky, a Hungarian artist and member of the Wiener Werkstätte.
