In order to promote Vienna in Romania, Austrian Airlines is turning part of the Beans&Dots venue in Bucharest into a Viennese cafe, Cafe Viena, a nice pop up café. So, during December 5-11, coffee lovers have the chance to taste the Austrian specialties, coffee, snacks and pastries, but also to attend workshops of an Austrian barista who will prepare traditional coffee recipes and cocktails
The history of the Viennese coffee
Vienna and coffee have made history together ever since the first coffeehouse has been inaugurated in the city at the end of the 17th century. Composers like Mozart, Beethoven and Josef Strauss, and later on painters and writers such as Arthur Schnitzler, Gustav Klimt or Egon Schiele used to meet there, giving the cafe a special meaning.
The unique, cozy ambient and the special coffee recipes have made the cafe a cultural venue, which has become part of the UNESCO world heritage patrimony in 2011.
The Viennese coffee is made in many ways and has a wide range of flavors: Wiener Melange, Franziskaner, Einspänner, Maria Theresia or Fiaker. All have the special appreciation feeling in common that everyone experiences when tasting a good coffee.
Visitors to Café Viena will also be able to take part in a raffle on the campaign’s website, cafea.austrian.com , and to get free coffees at the coffeehouse or to win exclusive prizes, such as a unique trip to Vienna by Austrian Airlines, plane tickets or sets of premium Austrian Airlines luggage.
Austrian Airlines, Austria’s flagship airline, is operating flights to over 130 destinations in the world, with Vienna International Airport as the main hub. Austrian Airlines has direct flights from Bucharest to Vienna up to five times a day. The Austrian airline also operates flights from Sibiu and Iasi.
