Cult of the Dead Vienna

The Viennese concern themselves with death quite happily during their lifetime: they sing about it, play with it and build monuments to it. The cult of the dead is a slightly macabre yet gleeful manifestation, and a strategically clever move against the finiteness of life.

Kaffeehaus Culture Vienna

The Viennese say they looted sacks of coffee beans after the Turks withdrew following a failed siege in 1683. But it was a spy on the payroll of the Royal Court who gave the city its real taste for coffee. Born in Istanbul, he founded Vienna’s first Kaffeehaus in 1685.
