Join us for this special event to learn about Viennese Coffee House culture with GAI member and Vienna native Monika Fulton. After the presentation, you get a chance to order Kaffee specialties from a Karte served Kaffeehaus-style and enjoy them mit Torte.
Coffee in Vienna is not just a morning pick-me-up or an afternoon perk. It is NEVER drunk in paper cups, nor is it guzzled down while getting from point A to point B. In Vienna, coffee is a way of life and is an essential part of the local culture.
In fact, UNESCO has added Viennese Coffee House culture to their list of intangible cultural heritage, saying that the coffee houses have a very specific atmosphere and are places "where time and space are consumed, but only the coffee is found on the bill."
