Viennese Coffee Museum - all & much more about coffee
Shortly introduce your museum...
In 2003, Edmund Mayr founded the Viennese Coffee Museum as part of the Austrian Society and Economic Museum at Vogelsanggasse 36, 1050 Vienna, with great passion and love. Like no other location, it covers the entire history of the brown bean and gives extensive insights into the world-famous and now UNESCO heritage-awarded "Viennese coffee house culture".
What makes your museum so unique?
The museum is an information center and experience at the same time, with historical and current exhibits. Everything about coffee can be found here - from the plant, harvest, roasting and preparation method to the steaming cup of coffee.
How did you get the idea to start this museum?
"A cultural treasure of this prominence needs attention in a museum!" This is the credo of the founder.
Why did you choose Vienna as location?
Apart from being Viennese, the coffee houses of the city reflect their character: The Viennese coffee house is still the meeting place and communication center in the city for people, an oasis of peace and relaxation in the midst of hectic everyday life. Here you can sit, wait, live, read, chat, discuss, play, flirt, dream with a cup of coffee and the glass of water. In short: simply feel good!
Is there something special abou the location of your museum?
The Coffee Museum is located in the same building as the Economic Museum, a beautiful brick building.

Karl Schilling's personal Vienna insights
Why I like living in Vienna ...
Because the city, despite being an international metropolis, has not lost its coziness, charm and character.
What does this city look like to me?
The buildings, their history, the coffeehouse culture, the large mocha, the people, the retreats, the Danube Canal, the Wiener Schnitzel, the Heurigen, the wine, the little pubs, the green spaces in the middle of the city.
