Gerbeaud - Confectionery, Budapest: 9 reviews and 22 photos
-->...of course the Gerbaud building wich is one of Budapest`s symbolic architectual landmarks. It was founded in 1870 by Henrik Kugler. This confectioner from Sopron constructed this building and than, since he had no sons, ha gave it to Emil Gerbaud a swiss collegue who met in Paris in 1882. In fact, Gerbaud came to Budapest and yet in 1884 he was the owner of the confectionery. He stayed here in Budapest until his death in 1919.
In 1910 the palace was transformed in secessionist style.
Even in the communist times this building conserved the same reputation of the initial times, although under the name of Vörösmarty confectionary. In 1995 the building was completely refurbished by the new owner, the german Erwin Müller.
In the building besides the confectionery, you find a restaurant, a beer house, and numerous conference halls as well.
