Cafe Savoy in Vienna – your coffee house with tradition since 1896
The Cafe Savoy impresses not only with its elaborate architecture, but also with its rich history. The former textile manufacturer Baron Julius Leon von Wernburg bought the property in 1889. In the years 1896/1897 he had the palace Wernburg built by the architect Franz Ritter von Neumann in the splendid neo-renaissance style. Neumann's architect was a student of the architects von Siccardsburg and van der Nüll, who also built the Vienna Opera House.
The original "Cafe Wienzeile" extended over the entire ground floor to the left of the entrance along Köstlergasse and Wienzeile. It was run by the Kuszak coffeehouse dynasty, which also operated coffeehouses in Prague and Budapest. In the interwar period, part of the original existing area was abandoned and the "Café Wienzeile" finally 1983 renamed the "Cafe Savoy".
