7 Classic Austrian Coffee Houses That Take Us Back

By David Hoffman

Every city worth its salt has its share of old-school cafés, but in Austria, we’re talking the real deal: institutions that have been around for centuries (yes, plural).

Café Central, Vienna. | @wonguy974

Your neighborhood coffee shop might be cute, but it can’t compare to cafés with interiors that look like palaces…

Café Munding, Innsbruck. | @bernaaaydin

…and cups that come on saucers and silver trays.

Café Bazar, Salzburg. | @okkavdd

It’s probably not where the luminaries of the day used to grab a seat by the river…

Café Katzung, Innsbruck. | @pennylena

…to settle down with a (now-)vintage book.

Café Tomaselli, Salzburg. | @katielmayne

And it definitely didn’t exist before analog photography was trendy…

Café Prückel, Vienna. | @71cinematographer

…then untrendy…

Café Sperl, Vienna. | @j1kim

…and then trendy again.

In any case, have fun getting coffee! Sorry if we’ve ruined it for you.

What Journy customers are saying

Zach & Samantha

I found Journy after already getting an itinerary from a typical travel agency. Simply put, Journy’s recommendations blew theirs out of the water. Every concierge we worked with really listened to what we wanted as travelers and led us to the off-the-beaten-path sights we were looking for. Plus, the process is super smooth and easy!
