...sweetening the day for visitors to Altenburg since 1878
Beneath the historical Altenburg Royal Palace, lying between the theatre and the skat fountain in the heart of the old part of town, you will find the oldest coffee house in Thuringia: Volkstädt confectionery and coffee house and smokers' lounge. For over 140 years – and now in the fifth generation, delicacies have been produced here according to age-old recipes. And they still taste good today – not only to the residents of Altenburg but also to the countless guests. This coffee house also enjoys a high reputation extending well beyond the regional borders of Altenburg.
Opening hours and service
The Confectionery is open from Tuesday to Friday - 9:30 am to 5 pm, Saturday from 9:30 am to 12 noon, and Sunday from 1 pm to 4:30 pm. The Coffee House is open from Tuesday to Friday - 10 am to 5:30 pm, and Sunday from 2 pm to 5 pm. Here you are served with delicious gâteaux, pastries, cakes as well as ice-cream varieties from the in-house confectionery.

Orders for special occasions are also gladly accepted: wedding cakes decorated with blossoms or fresh fruit as well as those in a heart shape, gâteaux for football and film fans, for starting school or anniversaries, the whole in sheer elegance or gaudy and full of colour – the offer covers everything to please those with a sweet tooth.

Lovers of savoury food also get full value for money in the Volkstädt Confectionery and Coffee House. And for those who would like to take a little stroll through the shops afterwards – the Market with its wide range of shopping possibilities is only a five-minute walk away.
