Old Viennese Schnapsmuseum Enjoy the atmosphere of the good old days and let yourself be guided by the Fischer family through the world of spirits and liqueurs! A personal guide will greet you at the entrance of the Old Vienna patrician home at Wilhelmstrasse 19 in Viennas 12th District. The tour starts in the old office, also known as the Comptoir, with its original furnishings dating back to 1902. With a brief history of the family, you will be transported back to the Imperial Age with all of its charm. Then its on to the next building, the Composition Room. The interior of this room resembles an old-fashioned apothecary, and here you will discover the basics of making schnapps and liqueurs in an entertaining tour. Last but not least, you will get a chance to taste a wide variety of schnapps and liqueurs at the bar in the large distillery room with the first steam distillation vessels. Homemade juices are available for our guests who do not drink alcohol. On the way to the exit you'll pass through a typical old Viennese inner courtyard.

Very small museum but the guide was very informative and it was a cool thing to see. The best bit was obviously the taste test at the end, everything I tried was delicious, this was a great experience!

Not a large museum, but the owner is a wealth of information. Schnaps has been in his blood for 4 generations and her makes the history of it fun. The tasting afterwards is great

Pretty interesting little museum, you can learn a lot about the history of Schnaps and how they make it. Doesn't take too long, and they have a bunch of different kinds for sale!
