Eighteen people came out in October. Most were new attendees and the mean age was about 45. It was a very special night, as Death Cafes seem to be.

Someone said they were surprised at how comfortable it was and another ...

Dieses Death Café war ein besonderes Highligt. Wir hatten "Ehrengäste" die extra aus Graz angereist waren. Wir hatten Aileen zu Gast, die extra aus Linz angereist war und wir hatten Jella zu Gast, die das 1. Wiener Death Café veranstaltet hat. Darüber hinaus hatten wir12 wunderbare, interessante und originelle Menschen zu Gast, die diese zwei Stunden mit uns verbracht haben. Für mich eine Bereicherung und ich freue mich schon auf unser nächste Death Café im Jänner!

Death Cafe came relatively early to Austria. Jella Jost’s motivation for initiating the first Death Cafe in Vienna, however, had less to do with Vienna’s reputation for being a rather morbid city, but more with her personal experience with her mother’s death. When she came across Jon Underwood’s description of Death Cafe, it seemed to be just what she was looking for, but since there was no Death Cafe nearby yet ...
