Italian ice cream
Big names in Italian ice cream have settled in the neighbourhood, just a few streets from the Hotel du Danube. Let's start with Grom, the maker of pure and authentic gelato from Turin, and its Slow Food philosophy. This brand’s ice cream draws the best from the finest agricultural sources, whether that’s hand-picked fruit, milk or eggs. The result is generous and flavourful sorbets and ice creams. Amorino and its flower-shaped ice creams need no introduction. With its organic approach and amazing flavours, this French brand remains one of the true treasures of the 6th arrondissement. Finally, we have a real crush on Il Gelato del Marchese and its ice cream made solely from organic ingredients and without preservatives or additives. In addition to traditional flavours, it offers amazing savoury dishes accompanied by ice cream. Discover their surprising combinations and keep cool in the Parisian summer!
A tempting multitude of ways to enjoy ice cream
Try some Californian-style ice cream. California Bliss offers frozen yoghurt in colourful and delicious varieties that marry French savoir-faire with West Coast inspiration and superfoods. The brand offers vegetarian, vegan and lactose-free versions. Many toppings are available to bring an extra tasty dash of panache, including chocolate balls, grated coconut, teddy bears, organic granola and more. Finally, let's not forget the Belgian touch of Marcolini. The master chocolatier also excels in generous and creamy ice creams, presented in distinctively stylish pots.
The 6th arrondissement has a definite gourmet appeal! Discover the irresistible creations of our best ice cream parlours during your stay at the Hotel du Danube.
