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. « less

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...

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
