Wiener Porzellanmanufaktur Augarten, the second oldest porcelain...

Wiener Porzellanmanufaktur Augarten, the second oldest porcelain manufactory in Europe, was founded in 1718. The “white gold” from Vienna has been lovingly moulded and shaped, glazed and painted by hand ever since; every single item of finest Augarten porcelain is just unique now as it was then. Design and artistic value reflect collaboration with generations of well-known artists. Augarten upholds this tradition, working closely with some of the most respected designers of our day.

The tour treats English speakers a little like second-class citizens in the sense that you are told to listen to the recorded English audio commentary while the live guide gives extensive commentary in German. We got the feeling we got less information than the german speakers as a result. However, as the tour progressed, the guide loosened up a bit... More

Visited recently. Quite easy to get to using the UBann Green line and tram. Tour is in German and if you speak English you get an audio guide with the basic information. However, we were shown around the factory. Porcelain was really expensive probably because each piece has to be hand painted individually. A lot of work goes into making... More

I was not able to go on a tour of the factory, but I have enjoyed the small museum of porcelain and the exhibition about the Congress of Vienna. The museum staff was very friendly and helpful. The restaurant, however, was a disappointment. After sitting there for over 15 minutes without so much as a 'Hello' (not to mention ordering... More

My mother, in the Viennese tradition, received a full service of Augarten porcelain for her wedding. We, too, were presented small pieces for our wedding from our Austrian relatives. I have always loved the service, but was somewhat stymied by the extraordinary pricing. Until I went on the tour. There are 30 staff creating these beautiful pieces. 15 for the... More

We had been on the guided tour on a previous trip and brought friends who went on the tour while we reminded ourselves of the museum. There was a small new exhibition of 1950s porcelain and other items from the period - I remembered many of them as a small boy. Not really worth going without going on the tour,... More

Rather dragged along to a porcelain factory by my wife, we arrived about two minutes after a guided tour should have started. They kept the others waiting while our English audio guides were found and we paid. Augarten porcelain is hand made and very expensive. Within a short time, you were understanding both - painstaking, complicated skills are needed to... More

We happened to notice information about the Porcelain Manufactory Augarten as a small sidebar on the city map given to us at our hotel (oldest in Vienna, The Hotel Stefanie--a wonderful place, small lobby yet elegant and serene, quiet spacious rooms, great beds, terrific breakfast, gracious and friendly staff.) The Stefanie is on Tabor Strasse, within easy walking distance to... More

The tour lasts about 1,5 hours. You get a good understanding of how this manufactory works by going through the premises and listening about their working processes. Our guide, Benjamin, was particularly good, willing to answer quite specific questions. What we loved most was that the tour was not focused on the history, but covered in details the current life...

I did not do the tour as it is only in the morning. The porcelain factory is housed in the remnants of the old Augarten palace, it is a short walk from the Tabor str metro.The restaurant is very good. In the shop the staff are very helpful but the displays of the famous porcelain are extremely limited and disappointing.... More

We enjoyed our visit to Porcelain Manufaktur very much. We stayed in a hotel nearby and I read that they have morning tours of the production facilities. So, off we went. It is located in a nice old palace building inside a beautiful park. We had a pleasant stroll around it afterwards. The tour was for about 1 hour, it... More

Staying in Leopoldstadt

Neighborhood Profile
Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city center and take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old townhouses, churches, theaters, discount shops and ethnic restaurants. Head for Augarten via Karmelitermarkt, Leopoldstadt’s trendy marketplace. Baroque Augarten itself hosts a bizarre mix of manicured hedges and flowerbeds in front of a colossal World War II defense tower, the publicly accessible 300-year-old Augarten porcelain manufactory, the palatial boarding school and funky concert hall of the Vienna Boys Choir, and the modern art museum TBA21. At its opposite corner, The Prater not only houses the Giant Ferris Wheel but blends a bustling amusement park with lush woodland, perfect for a bike tour. Further east is the old derby racing ground of Krieau.
