The oldest
coffee house of Vienna


Coffee and good conversation

A very popular café was the one founded by Alois Hänisch, which until 1824 was located at the old Fleischmarkt ["meat market", a street in the central Viennese 1stDistrict] and where you could always have a good conversation. On October 24th, 1824, the café moved to the address Himmelpfortgasse No. 965, in today’s counting No. 6 [also in the 1st District], where he attracted attention with his sign. Around 1827 he had two life-size figures painted on his door-posts by the history painter Erasmus Engerth, one allegedly depicting the first coffee-maker Kolschitzky.


Chess & the egg punch

The café had the reputation of being one of the most quiet in town, because its was patronized strongly by pensioned military officers and civil servants, who would play chess and whist. During the carnival season delicious egg punch was served. Then the café would be somewhat livelier.


a popular meeting place already in 1854

In 1840 the café was acquired by one Kasimir, later, in 1849, by Anton Zagorz, who had it refurbished by Johann Zizula. The café has changed its name a few times, eg. "Kaffeehaus Herzog", and since 1891 it has had its present name, "Café Frauenhuber". The house where Café Frauenhuber is located today existed as early as 1746, as evidenced by an engraving by Salomon Kleinerherder from this period (the original is in Cafe Frauenhuber). It was mentioned as a coffee house since 1824 and completely renovated in 2000. We hope that we succeeded in preserving an old Viennese coffee house in its typical way.
