Why visit: history of Unicum, Unicum tasting
Zwack Museum (Zwack Unicum Heritage Visitors' Centre) follows the story of a special drink and the history of a family. It all began in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, about two centuries ago when Dr. Zwack, royal physician to the Habsburg Emperor, invented a bitter, dark-colored drink. Unicum, a blend of more than 40 herbs, is created according to the secret formula, closely protected by the Zwack family, ever since.
The museum also houses a unique collection of 17,000 miniature bottles of every alcoholic beverage you can imagine. After your visit of the museum’s exhibits you can sample the famous Unicum and other Zwack products.
