Café Central

Café Central (52A)

Palais Ferstel, Herrengasse, 14.

Café Central is perhaps the most famous café in Vienna, one of the largest and perhaps one of the most interesting architecturally. It opened in 1860 on the ground floor of the Palais Ferstel.

It was famous as a meeting place for writers, musicians and thinkers. The architect Adolf Loos, the Austrian poet Peter Altenberg and the Jewish-Russian political revolutionary León Trotsky, even Freud, used to play chess here.

According to the essayist Peter Altenberg, he only left this place to go to bed. In fact, you will be greeted by him, not in person of course, but by a life-size figure made of papier-mâché sitting by the door. It is very realistic.

You can often enjoy live music during your visit to this wonderful place.
