Neighborhood: Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.

Visited this shop in our first trip to Vienna. Was drawn to it by their focus on Klimt. We bought some cushion covers and on arrival back home in Australia discovered that one was the incorrect size. Contacted the store and they sent a replacement to us within a few weeks at no charge.

I bought some inexpensive handmade brass rings here. There are some items that are very expensive (furniture, glassware) and then some smaller craft items. The good thing is that there are some nice things that are not in the run-of-the mill souvenir shops.

About 20 years ago I ducked out of a conference in search of authentic Austrian crafts and luckily stumbled into a store with three floors of genuine Austrian goods. I did not remember the name or location of the store except it was near St. Stephen's Cathedral. On this visit I led my husband on a quest to find it, never believing it would still be there, but happily it was and it is as wonderful as 20 years ago. The jewelry, ceramics, fabric items, glass work, and art is all handmade by Austrian artists. The prices range from low (less than E10) to very high. When I told the sales people I had visited 20 years ago they were extremely happy. The sales person was attentive but not smothering so I could browse at my leisure. If you are looking for some lovely items to give as gifts or as a keepsake, I recommend this store. The crafts are beautiful but not like the ones you find in the souvenir shops.

This shop was listed as about 10 restaurants and places to see on information given out by our guide. I made it my mission to see as it was exactly the kind of shop I like. It was so very hot but worth the trek. I found several things including handmade earrings that came with a certificate of authenticity and a notebook with beautiful paper for my grandaughter. The clerks were very knowledgeable and helpful. If I’m ever back in Vienna, I will be sure to come back here

Whenever I am fortunate enough to visit Vienna, I always plan to visit this store, which represents some of the finest artisan work in Austria. The selection is impressive - from crystal and glass to textiles to jewelry to ceramics and, at Christmas, some exquisitely made Christmas ornaments and decorative pieces. The quality and display are exceptional, and the price range makes it possible to find a lovely treasure whatever your budget may be.

They sale Austrian made products in this store and many are unique from the junk normally sold as souvenirs. Unfortunately a lot of the pieces are a bit expensive and more importantly not my taste. I do have a purse from here and it really makes a statement but most of the other pieces are a bit too unique for me :)

Whilst 'window shopping' one evening my wife spotted a lovely necklace and bracelet in the window display. On the last day of our stay and with a few euros left, we returned but the items were no longer on show. The staff could not have been more helpful trying to match our vague description of the items, to what they had in stock. In the end it took 3 assistants and 15 minutes of searching to locate them. After all this diligent work, my wife felt obliged to buy them (well that's her excuse!). Excellent service.

Overall, the shop stocks a good range of quality items.
