The Querfeld family today

We cultivate and shape Viennese hospitality à la Landtmann.


From 1988, Berndt Querfeld and his parents perfected the "Landtmann style" in the tradition of the typical Viennese coffee house. In the following years, the family took over other cafés and successfully brought the Viennese pastry culture from the parent company into effect. Since 2006, "Landtmann's fine Patisserie" has been supplying to all the cafés from a large bakery in Alt Erlaa: Café Mozart at the Albertinaplatz, Café Residenz in Schönbrunn, Café Hofburg in the inner courtyard, Landtmann's Park Café at the Neptune Fountain in the Schönbrunn Palace Park, the Café Museum, Landtmann's Jausen station in the Crown Prince Garden of Schönbrunn and the Boat house on the Old Danube. Every business of the Querfeld family is geared to their individual potential with a great deal of feeling and taste. The Landtmann is no “museum” coffee house, but a lively place of encounter. All locations are run by family members and great coffee house staffs.

„Leben ins Leben geben!

Duties and responsibilities:

CEO at Café Landtmann; CEO Café Mozart and Crossfield’s Australian Pub.

Even now that I am already retired, I spend a lot of time at Café Landtmann. I greet the guests, some of them I've been knowing for many years. I make sure that we meet people's expectations of our Grand Café. The coffeehouse has to shine, the clothes of the employees have to fit perfectly. In short, I pay attention to tidiness, style and elegance.

 

Hobbies:

Going hiking in the mountains with friends all over the world. Climb the highest peak, go hiking trough the primeval forest and spleep in tents. Admire the nature and get to know countries and people. Art and culture of all kinds: theatre, opera, museums or literature.
