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...more
Obere Augartenstrasse 1A | Schloss Augarten, Vienna 1020, Austria
I enjoyed learning about what goes into making pottery and the history of it. However, it wasn't a very large museum and there wasn't a lot to see. Also, the gift shop was small and everything was incredibly expensive! I'm glad I went, but I...More
While the tour is held in German there are English headphones. I picked up key words and generally looked as I’m familiar with making with porcelain. I was keen to see another porcelain factory and this one, while small, was perfect to get an overview...More

My wife is very keen on pottery, so our visit here was absolutely incredible, as she was able to provide deeper insights above and beyond the descriptions on the wall plaques. Yes, the gift shop is pricey if you consider only the porcelain, but there...More
The tour guide speaks German. English speakers are given an audioguide, which has very limited descriptions of the main areas seen in the factory. This information is clearly far less than is provided in German, and when I asked a question the tour guide was...More
The factory is open Monday to Thursday. The time it is opened is varied so must check before you go. We missed the tour of the working factory. We did see their small collection of lovely artistic pieces from this factory. One can also buy...More
I'm interested in ceramics, so a walk across Augarten to the Royal Porcelain Manufactory was worthwhile.
The gallery has an entry fee, so only bother if this is an area of interest for you.
The displays themselves are nicely laid out; principally narrated in German,...More
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.
