This forum is dedicated to traveling and tourism and not philately. On Kärntner Strasse (Karlsplatz side) there is a shop of the Austrian Postal Service that is specialised on philately.

You'll find a list of stamp dealers here. Most have email addresses so I'd contact them first to see if they have what you want.

Interesting thing about early Austrian stamps is that they do not have the county name on them:

Yes that's true. Because Britain had the first postage stamps. But they always have a picture or silhouette of the King or Queen.

For other counties it is rare not to have name on them. There are a few exceptions:

I'm going to transit in Vienna this summer and would like to purchase some new stamps (I call it "souvenir sheets"). Any post office near VIE airport that open on Sat? Anna, did you get the stamps that you were looking for? I am also collecting stamps, new stamps as souvenir sheets which look nice in the sheet and not too expensive. Thanks in advance on any feedback!
