Our coffee house

Charming, imperial & typical Viennese

You will find our Café Residenz in the Cavalier Wing, on the left-hand side in the palace courtyard. Located right at the exit of the imperial rooms, perfect for a break before or after your visit to the palace. Where once were cooked for the imperial guards, you can today enjoy the typical atmosphere of a Viennese coffee house with cosy upholstered benches, sitting lounges and noble chandeliers. In summer, you can sit outside on our covered terrace, surrounded by the beautiful yellow facades of Schönbrunn and the green of the palace park and gardens. Look forward to a relaxing stay with selected specialties and quick service. A special highlight is our Hofbackstube, where the original Viennese strudel show takes place. Since 1998, Café Residenz has been run by us, the Querfeld -family: a family known for being coffee house proprietors. It is our hearts' desire to cultivate and develop the traditional Viennese coffee house culture.

Historical stories from the Imperial Palace

Why our coffee house is so unique.

The Habsburgs have designed the Hofburg over centuries and made it a center of European politics. Empress Sisi and Emperor Franz Joseph I, who have lived above us, are among the most famous representatives of the family.
