Town: Vienna Address: Klagbaumgasse 4 Phone: +43 1 734 3540 The Chimney Sweep Museum in the Fourth District of Vienna has been operating for over 15 years. This site is geared towards the history of chimney sweeping in Vienna, comprising exhibits of old equipment, chimneys, ovens and documents. You'll also find there New Year postcards and good luck charms. The city's 150 chimney sweepers have trained six years for their professions, and had to pass exams in fire and safety regulations. The sweeps enjoy a reputation as 'bringers of good luck'. Former sweep Günther Nowak hosts visitors around the museum.
