Wetzel Karlsbader Oblaten- und Waffelfabrik

A story of tradition since 1948

Wetzel has made a commitment - tradition and innovation have always been a priority in our waffle factory. For us, history is both a driving force and an obligation - for the careful production of nostalgic and modern waffle and wafer specialties of the highest quality. The best option for anyone who wants to enjoy fine wafers true to the original is to go for the wafer-thin crispy slices from Wetzel.


The Karlsbader wafer, which were once prized and loved by guests at the Karlsbader spa as a delicious spa treat, has stood for more than two centuries for joie de vivre and enjoyment.  Several generations have now associated the sweet, crispy treat with the Wetzel name. In each of our wafer and waffle specialties you will taste the perfect combination of almost 70 years of baking tradition, carefully selected ingredients and the deepest passion for our baking craft.

The soft and light texture, the inimitable fragrance and the unmistakable taste together with our high quality standards enchant people with a sweet tooth all over the world. This tremendous trust of our customers in our delicious biscuit specialties has made Wetzel what it is today: a successful and modern family business, which combines and enriches awareness of tradition with innovative ideas.
