Tichy is a family-run business, originating over 60 years ago in 1952. Nowadays, the legendary Tichy is run by the second generation of Tichys and a great central location guarantees that this ice cream parlor always stays busy. Tichys is a Viennese classic and an integral spot to visit as this is the only place where people can get the famous eismarillenknödel – vanilla ice cream with an apricot core, rolled in grated, roasted and caramelised hazelnuts. If you’ve purchased other variations of ice cream apricot dumplings, they won’t equal this patented delicacy.
