The word Baumstriezel is a German word which is used in Austria and Germany for the product called Kürtőskalács.

Despite having a different name, Baumstriezel is the same product and recipe as Kurtoskalacs / Chimney cake / Trdelnik.
Where can I buy Baumstriezel?
The Baumstriezel is mainly served fresh and warm, during the colder months and therefore its quite often found for sale at the annual Christmas markets. However, all year around locations are opening up in both Austria and Germany, offering the Chimney cone as well as the traditional Chimney shape product.
Can I establish my own Baumstriezel business in Austria or Germany or must I buy a franchise?
