Vienna revives coffee house culture

From March 2013, Vienna travellers will revive the Vienna coffeehouse culture of conversation and debate, by sharing dinner and a good talk with a local from Vienna.

The monthly Vienna Coffeehouse Conversations are held in English and will bring visitors and Viennese together in 1:1 conversations in traditional cafés.

A menu of questions will help participants share their views on travel, friendship, compassion, inspiration and more.

"The Vienna Coffeehouse Conversations enable travellers to re-invent the world-famous and UNESCO-recognised Vienna coffeehouse culture, echoing a time when Sigmund Freud, Gustav Klimt and Stefan Zweig met acquaintances in cafés to exchange ideas and debate", explains co-organiser Barbara Grüll-Cação from  Vienna Austria travel site Vienna Unwrapped
(http://www.vienna-unwrapped.com).

The topics for conversation are arranged across a three-course Viennese meal and coffee.

The two locations, Café Museum and Café am Heumarkt, represent the best of bohemian, literary, contemporary Vienna. The city has a rich tradition of lively, late-night discussion, which the Coffeehouse Conversations will add to. The food reflects the Habsburg era sweep of central Europe, with influences from Italy right up into Poland.

Eugene Quinn, of Viennese cultural event group space and place (www.spaceandplace.at), sees this as an opportunity to go deeper than on a typical city visit.

"We staged two sold-out events for locals in April, and decided to liven things up by introducing international participants. We invite people from around the world to come and get to know more about Vienna, and make a new friend. At the end of each event, there is a get-together for all invitees, to encourage some international friendship."
